I am not a fortune teller, I am not your psychic
friend
I don't claim to know tomorrow, I don't even try to
pretend
But I can be your storyteller, and I can be your
oldest friend
And I can be the sentinel for all the dreams that you
defend

I am not a mystery, I am not a foreign code
I am not an ancient myth that any man has ever told
But I can be your miracle, and the coat that covers
you
And when the windy world tells lies, my love will tell
the truth

And if we ever really said goodbye, it's nothing I've
rehearsed
Maybe I could laugh it off, maybe my whole heart would
burst
I don't know if time will be a blessing or a curse
I can't hold the second hand, but you can hold my
first

I can't give you dark or danger to make you realize
what you've had
But every time we try to act like strangers, it only
makes us both feel sad
I am not a fortune teller, but I can tell a fortune
true
Ever time it stands before me, and every time I think
of you
