Without You I'd Have Never Known - Gary Robinson

    Take my hand, my friend
    I have been waiting patiently
    The day will soon be through

    Trains and planes and rockets
    They've all gone shooting by
    Now I'm just glad to see you

    chorus:
    But I cried a long time, I cried a long time
    Just before the moment you appeared
    I was sad as a snail, I was filled with fear
    But now the evening, But now the evening
    Shines upon you as I say, Although
    I had thought once or twice that we are not alone
    Without you I'd have never known

    In a night of longing
    Or in a day of dreaming
    My thoughts have wandered over

    Sad terrains of wanting
    And empty fields of needing
    Till these became my lover

    I cried a long time
    I had a lonely time
    But that's the way our lives must sometimes go
    I tried to hide it
    You said, "Don't shy away from it."
    You said you'd been there often enough to know

    And then you told me how
    You had been reaching out
    An empty handed soldier

    When no one could hear you
    At least that's how it seemed to you
    A cry without an answer

    And all together, And all together
    Everyone is riding on this train
    On the track of love but still the track of pain
    As now the evening. As now the evening
    Shines upon you and I say, Although
    I had thought once or twice that we are not alone
    Without you I'd have never known

    Ooh, and tonight we've built a home

    And furnished it with kindness
    And put that pain behind us
    Like it was never known
