Crystal Gayle – ‘Til I Gain Control Again Lyrics

Just like the sun over the mountain top
You know I’ll always come again
You know I like to spend my morning time
Like sunlight dancing on your skin

I’ve never gone so wrong as for telling lies to you
What you’ve seen is what I’ve been
And there is nothing I can hide from you
You see me better than I can

Out on the road that lies before me now
There are some turns where I will spin
I only hope that you can hold me now
Til I can gain control again

Like a lighthouse you must stand alone
Landmark a sailor’s journey’s end
No matter what seas I’ve been sailing on
I’ll always roll your way again
