"Now the words had all been spoken And somehow the feeling still wasn't right And still we continued on through the night Tracing our steps from the beginning Until they vanished into the air Trying to understand How our lives has lead us there
Looking hard into your eyes There was nobody I'd ever known Such an empty surprise to feel so alone Now for me some words come easy But I know that they don't mean that much Compared with the things That are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you I don't know what you loved in me Maybe the picture of somebody You were hoping I might be Awake again I can't pretend And I know I'm alone and close to the end Of the feeling we've known
How long have I been sleeping How long have I been drifting Alone through the night How long have I've dreaming I could make it right If I closed my eyes And tried with all my might To be the one you need
Awake again I can't pretend And I know I'm alone and close to the end Of the feeling we've known How long I've been sleeping How long have I been drifting Alone through the night How long have I been running For that morning flight Through the whispered promises And the changing light Of the bed where we both lie Late for the sky"
