Lyrics

Dreaming
in the daylight
of staring
into your eyes,
the ache
lasts all waking hours
and night
no matter what I try
-- and I try.

In restless sleep
I search
for you,
reaching for your hand,
and when I wake
the sunlight
turns to crystal
through my tears.

Waiting for a glance,
given nothing,
my pain
is all I see.
One sacred moment,
forgotten
by you,
will live
an eternity
with me.

In restless sleep
I search for you,
reaching for your hand,
and when I wake
the sunlight
turns to crystal
through my tears.

Waiting for a glance,
given nothing,
I flee.
You’re with someone else,
that much I can see,
but my beautiful pain
belongs
to me.
