Lyrics

Drifting, drifting
Drifting, drifting

I was lost, I was drifting
I was drifting on life’s lonely sea
Drifting here, drifting there
Always searching for the love that was meant for me

Tossed around just like drift would
I get reaching for someone like you
You appeared and my dreams have been answered

Here I am with the one I adore
With you here in my arms, no more drifting
You’re the love, I’ve been searching for

Tossed around just like driftwood
I get reaching for someone like you
You appeared and my dreams have been answered

Here I am with the one I adore
With you here in my arms, no more drifting
You’re the love, I’ve been searching for
