Bernadette Lyrics

People are searching for
The kind of love that we possess
Some go on
Searching their whole life through
And never find the love I've found in you

And when I speak of you, I see envy in other men's eyes
And I'm well aware of what's on their minds
They pretend to be my friend when all the time
They long to persuade you from my side

They'd give the world and all they own
For just one moment we have known

They want you because of the pride that gives
But Bernadette
I want you because I need you to live

But while I live only to hold you
Some other men, they long to control you
But how can they control you, Bernadette
When they can not control themselves, Bernadette
From wanting you, needing you, but darling

You belong to me, I'll tell the world
You belong to me, I'll tell the world
You're the soul of me, I'll tell the world
You're a part of me, Bernadette

In your arms I find the kind of peace of mind
The world is searching for
But you, you give me the joy
This heart of mine has always been longing for
In you I have what other men long for
All men need someone to worship and adore
That's why I treasure you and place you high above
For the only joy in life is to be loved

So whatever you do, Bernadette
Keep on loving me, Bernadette
Keep on needing me, Bernadette

You're the soul of me, more than a dream
You are planned to me

And Bernadette
You mean more to me
Than a woman was ever meant to be

My darling, Bernadette
