If you ever need someone
to shield you from the rain,
like a river I will run,
I would always be the one.
For I can see your wisdom rise
like a phoenix starting to fly.
In the tender arms of our love
We’d be undone

If you ever need someone
to guide you through the storm
I would cross the mighty tide
where the sky and sea divide.
For my lover’s heart is strong,
when it comes to love’s tender thorn.
In the arms of our love
We’d be undone.

Can you hear me calling?
Oh, my buddy, I will always be
in the whisper of an ocean breeze.
I will meet you
on the long ride home.

– Adapted lyrics by Michael Bayly
of Kiki Dee & Carmello Luggeri’s song, “I’d Be Undone
(from the 2022 album The Long Ride Home)
