Lyrics

Although the lyrics of the two versions are almost the same, I put here both versions.

 

First Version (on Blue Angel Album)

Maybe he'll know

I'm not so sure

Maybe he'll know

Maybe he'll be my cure

ah, ah, ah.

 

Maybe he'll know

I'm not so sure

Maybe he'll know

Maybe he'll be - oh

 

Something calls to me

I know, I know

I hear an echo start to pound like a drum, I'm

Chanting a song, anchor me-

But don't take too long... no, no, no, no

 

I got an anxious feeling

Got this ache engraved in me like stone-

Don't take too long

Say you'll never leave me - say you'll never go.

Second Version (on True Colors Album)

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

 

Maybe he'll know

I'm not so sure

Maybe he'll know, well

Maybe he'll be my cure

 

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

 

Maybe he'll know, well

I'm not so sure

Maybe he'll know why

Maybe he'll be, oh oh

 

Something calls to me,

I know

I hear an echo start to pound

Like a drum

Chanting a song, anchor me

But don't take too long, no no

I got this anxious feeling

I got this ache engraved

In me like stone

Don't take too long

Say you'll never leave me

Say you'll never go

No no no no

 

Oh oh, oh oh, ...

 

(repeat song and sing along)
