HADESTOWN the Musical - All I've Ever Known Lyrics

[Eurydice]:
I was alone so long
Didn't even know that I was lonely

Out in the cold so long
Didn't even know that I was cold
Turn my collar to the wind
This is how it's always been

All I've ever known is how to hold my own

All I've ever known is how to hold my own
but now I want to hold you too


You take me in your arms
And suddenly there's sunlight all around
Everything bright and warm
Shining like it never did before
And for a moment I forget
Just how dark and cold it gets

All I've ever known is how to hold my own

All I've ever known is how to hold my own
but now I want to hold you
Hold you close, I don't want to ever have to let you go
Now I want to hold you, hold you tight
I don't want to go back to the moonlight

Say that you'll hold me forever
Say that the wind won't change on us
Say that we'll stay with each other
That it will always be like this

[Orpheus]:
I want to hold you forever
The wind will never change on us
As long as we stay with each other
It will always be like this

[Thanks to Persephone for lyrics]
