The Arms of Orion
Orion's arms are wide enough
To hold us both together
Although we're worlds apart
I'd cross the stars for you

In the heart of a sleepless moon
I'll be with you forever
This is my destiny
Till my life is through

The arms of Orion, that's where I want to be
Since you've been gone
I've been searching for a lover in the Sea of Tranquility
I'm drowning without you here, my dear

When I am lost and feeling lovely
I just look to heaven
I find my comfort there
God only knows where you are tonight

God only knows where you are tonight
Maybe time will tell me
Till then I'll close my eyes and say a prayer for you
(I'll say a prayer for you too)

The arms of Orion that's where I want to be
Since you've been gone
I've been searching for a lover in the Sea of Tranquility
I'm drowning without you here, my dear

Orion's heart is bright enough
To shine on both of us
The constellations never fail
To light the way for love

Orion's arms are wide enough
To hold us both together
Although we're worlds apart
(I'd cross the stars for you)
I'd cross the stars for you

The arms of Orion that's where I want to be
Since you've been gone I've been drowning (lost)
In the sea of tranquility (lonely)
Drowning without you here my dear (baby)

The arms of Orion, that's where I want to be
That's where I want to be (the arms of Orion)
That's where I want to be (the arms of Orion)

Since you've been gone, babe
Since you've been gone
I've been drowning, (drowning) drowning
Drowning without your love
The arms of Orion (arms of Orion)
