lyrics

You're going somewhere tonight
that I can never see -
to the end of the walk
where the night leaves darkness and me.

It's something I know too well.

Standing here on the steps alone
with the wind and the leaves
I long for tomorrow when time
again will cease
to pass me by as again we lie
in the forest of our lies -
tall and strong and where we belong -
towering to the sky.

It's a feeling I know too well.

So tomorrow night you'll come again
as if from another land
and all down my spine and all over my eyes
the sense of another's hands.

It's a feeling I know too well.
