When You Hold Me In Your Arms I Feel Like I'm At Home



Castles Of Sand
When you build castles of sand I feel like I'm a king
There's no majesty as grand
Resplendent everything
When you take my hand in yours I feel like I'm attached
There's no one I'd rather see
Past numbers all are scratched
When you croon romantic tunes I feel like I'm the flame
There's no fire I'd rather light
A heart deserves acclaim
When you press your lips to mine I feel like I'm complete
There's no mouth I'd rather kiss
These charms amply entreat
When you fantasize great plans I feel like I'm the dream
There's no plot I'd rather frame
Aristocratic scheme
When you hold me in your arms I feel like I'm at home
There's no place I'd rather be
No need to stray or roam
