I waited up by the telephone baby just hear your midnight call,
I sat alone for what seemed like years just counting cracks in the bedroom wall
Nothing in this whole wide world could break me down the way you do
Everyone says I’m as distant as I’ve ever been, Been pacing holes in my shoes

With nothing but the memory of you,
I hit the road not knowing what to do

And every mile that lies at my feet,
Every stranger that I meet
Every glance passed in between
Tells tales of terror I don’t know how to

Explain it darling, I’ve got chills running all down my spine
There’s a fire burning right behind my eyes

Follow the sound of my voice
In an instant you’ll find me
Prove that your love is still true

There are terrible forces at work,
Trying to keep us apart babe
Try not to let them succeed

After all this time I finally see
I have no control of my destiny

Still nothing could stop me I’m well on my way,
Whatever between us will quickly decay
I head towards the sunset, I’ll find you just wait,
I’d give up my life just to know that you were safe

Inside me, Hold on I’m starting to fade into black
Then I see you standing over me, I’m saved

It’s alright I’m right here
Reach out your hand
It will all be ok, the future is near
