About Anywhere I Wander

Lyrics

Anywhere I wander, anywhere I roam

Her arms were warm as they welcomed me
Hers eyes were a fire bright
And then I knew that my path must be
Through the ever haunted night

Anywhere I wander, anywhere I roam
Till I’m in the arms of my darling again
My heart will find no home
Anywhere I wander, anywhere I roam

Her voice was oh such a soft caress
Of love it gently told
And in her smile was the tenderness
I may never more behold

Anywhere I wander, anywhere I roam
Till I’m in the arms of my darling again
My heart will find no home
Anywhere I wander, anywhere I roam
