John Kay — That's When I Think Of You lyrics

Words and music by John Kay

I often lie awake at night
And gaze into the sky
I watch the stars move in their flight
And every time I wonder
At the beauty of the view
And when it's magic touches me
That's when I think of you

At times I lie down by the sea
And dream away the day
I hear the laughter of the free
That stroll along the bay
Their arms around each other
Their faces all aglow
Ah, when I see that kind of love
That's when I think of you

Lately I've been wondering about my fellow man
Seems he only want's to know me for his gain
And though I know it's human to take all that you can
Were it not for all your giving, I might never love again

I've tried to find the words
To write my feelings into song
At times I almost got it right
But most just turned out wrong
And this one, it's no different
The words just won't come through
But every time I sing this song
That's when I think of you
