i’m sitting here inside this stranger’s place
and time is racing by
i’ve been way out here for a month or more,
tonight i’m wondering why . . .
you try to understand the things that i feel
maybe this time i’ll find a way to explain it.
there is a dream, deep inside my head
and it may seem like it’s breaking the thread
that holds me to you . . .
still you have never wanted to change me
but darling i know, though we’re far apart
the signal is strong
this helpless heart will always belong to you . . .
to you, only to you, no one but you
this power takes me from the place i belong
to where only the strong get through
you got to keep on believing or you lose your way,
it slips right out of view . . .
though there are days the light can flicker and fade
here in this place tonight a fire is burning
