  FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

I was lost 'till you were found
And I never knew how far down I was falling
Before I'd reached the bottom

I was cold and you were fire
And I never knew how the pyre could be burning
On the edge of the ice field

And now the chilly Californian wind is blowing down our bodies again
And we're sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly Californian sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And can't you see my faded Levis bursting apart?
And don't you hear me crying: "Oh babe don't go"?
And don't you hear me screaming: "How was I to know?"

I'm in the middle of nowhere near the end of the line
But there is a border to somewhere waiting, and there is a tankful of time
Oh gimme just another moment to see the light of the day
And take me to another land where I don't have to stay
And I'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
And I'm gonna receive somebody with open arms, open eyes
Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine trough

For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you

I was dammed and you were saved
And I never knew how enslaved I was kneeling
In the chains of my master

I could laugh but you could cry
And I never knew just how high I was flying
Ah, with you right above me

And now the chilly Californian wind is blowing down our bodies again
And we're sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly Californian sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And can't you see my faded Levis bursting apart?
And don't you hear me crying: "Oh babe don't go"?
And don't you hear me screaming: "How was I to know?"

I'm in the middle of nowhere near the end of the line
But there is a border to somewhere waiting, and there is a tankful of time
Oh gimme just another moment to see the light of the day
And take me to another land where I don't have to stay
And I'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
And I'm gonna receive somebody with open arms, open eyes
Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine trough

For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you....

For taking in the rain when I'm feeling so dry
For giving me the answers when I'm asking you why
And my oh my
For that I thank you

For taking in the sun when I'm feeling so cold
For giving me a child when my body is old
And don't you know?
For that I need you

For coming to my room when you know I'm alone
For finding me a highway, for driving me home
And you got to know
For that I serve you

For pulling me away when I'm stopping to fall
For revving me up when I'm starting to stall
And all in all
For that I want you

For taking and for giving and for playing the game
For praying for my future in the days that remain
Oh Lord
For that I hold you

Oh but most of all
For crying out loud
For that I love you
Oh but most of all
For crying out loud
For that I love you
Oh but most of all
For crying out loud
For that I love you

When you're crying out loud
You know I love you....
