In a dream I am walking by a cold and restless sea
Through the wind I think I hear your voice calling to
me
And I can feel your arms as they hold your heart to
mine
But I awaken holding a shadow; I am lost in a darkness
that makes me blind

Tell me, how long will I hold this shadow, when will I
see the light?
Every time I feel you near me you are somehow lost in
the night
How long will you leave me wondering, will you ever
choose to stay?
Every time I thought you loved me you have suddenly
slipped away
And I can't hold your shadow

I am standing in the rain trying to rid my thoughts of
you
But all I think of are those nights you left me
speechless and confused
You touch my hand, I feel my heart begin to slip
And your eyes taunt me with a love that is just beyond
my grip

Tell me, how long will I hold this shadow, when will I
see the light?
Every time I feel you near me you are somehow lost in
the night
How long will you leave me wondering, will you ever
choose to stay?
Every time I thought you loved me you have suddenly
slipped away
And I can't hold your shadow

I'm afraid to fall for you again, I tell my heart
beware
Will you be there to catch me or will I shatter into
pieces that I can't repair?
