All I'll Ever Ask


All Ill Ever Ask - Joshua Kadison

Love means so many different things,
but you're all that matters,
and this is all I'll ever ask of you.

Tell me your dreams, so they could be mine too.
Let me be there, to help them come true.
Tell me your fears, when you feel afraid.
Come to my arms, let me rock them away.

That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
Of you...

Come to my shoulder, when you need to weep.
Wake me up, when you cannot sleep.
Talk to me, when you want to be heard.
Be silent with me, when you can't say a word.

That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
Of you...

I can't swear you'll never, have to cry another tear.
But whenever you want, someone to hold you, I'm always right here.

So just, come to me for anything at all.
Call my name, it's yours to call.
Feel my faith in you, when you can't find your own.
And always remember, you're never alone.

That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
Of you...

I can't swear you'll never, have to cry another tear.
But whenever you want, someone to hold you, remember, I'm always right here.

That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
That's all I'll ever ask.
Of you...

I wish that the entire song would play. If you're signed up at imeem.com, you'll hear the entire thing by clicking the link. This is the only copy of it that I can find online to share with all of you. It's a beautiful song. Joshua writes from the heart. His lyrics often capture that which many cannot put to words themselves. I don't have a lot to write about today and I found this song when I was in such a situation of not being able to put my feelings to words. Whether its for a friend, companion or a child, these words resonant beautifully. If you're not familiar with Joshua's work, I think you'll find a something in his catalogue that speaks to you.
