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
