Through open eyes I still can't see
You, important part of me
Walking on air, you'll find me there
What's on your mind? Love's so unkind
I waited hours for it, something so rare I held it close
Closer than ever now
What could be near, and yet so far?
Love's running away from me
Through open eyes I still can't see
Where there is time, you could be mine
Why dwell on past encounters?
At least they still affect us

Time, ticking away from us
Where there is time you still are mine
Love's running away from you
Through open eyes I've seen right through
Where there is hope I think I'll cope
Why wait in transit for it, rise up and reach out for it

It's forever, a promise you can't keep
I'll wait a lifetime for it, I'll rise, reach out and then I'll...
