Tom Jones I’m Counting On You Lyrics


The night is so wild

And downstairs the child is sleeping, her spirit is free

For more than an hour I have walked in the rain

I’ve been wondering what she will be

But where are the heroes, where are the dreams that I had

When I was young?

Am I hoping in vain, just to think she could change anything?

Well, I’m counting on you

I’m counting on you

To bring that sweet gentleness to your world and all that you do

My generation is losing its way, we don’t know what we’re leaving for you

So may there be millions who feel like you do, oh my love

There is so much to know, there is so far to go

But you are not alone

When this is your world and I’m counting on you

I’m counting on you

Come to me, turn to me, give me your eyes

When you see the mysteries of time

Here there are those who just live in the past

They will never let history lie

And this sad little island is breaking my heart with its dark

Shades of green

And as hard as I try I just cannot see why this should be

There is so much to know, there is so far to go

But you are not alone

When this is your world and I’m counting on you

So may there be millions who feel like you do, oh my love

There is so much to know, there is so far to go

But you are not alone

When this is your world

There is so much to know, there is so far to go

But you are not alone

When this is your world and I’m counting on you

Yes, I’m counting on you

And I’m counting on you

I’m counting on you

Yes, I’m counting on you
