Behind The Lines Submit Correct Lyrics

Held the book so tightly in my hand
I saw your picture, heard you call my name
There was something strange, I could not look away
I wanted to be there, I wanted to go

But you gave no reason
And you gave me no warning
But I was with you
Right by your side

Just give me the strength
And I can help you
And they can try their hardest
'Cause they don't frighten me

It is written in the book
The sun is hotter now
Than I felt before
But I feel so cold and I don't know why

But if the fire within your heart
Can beat the storm
Then I really believe
We gonna make it right

The time has come now
We gotta show our feelings
But I'm looking right through you
And your heart is empty

But whatever happened to you
It's too late to change now
'Cause there is nowhere you can run to, no place to hide
Ahh you let me down

But wait a minute, I don't understand
It's getting stronger, so grab my hand
Don't wanna leave you, now I don't wanna go
But I'm losing all control

Can't you see me?
I'm slipping away
And I can only stay
If you've the will to keep me here oh Lord

It is written in the book

Oh so many times since then I've read those words
I'm waiting to see you, can you see me?
Oh tell me can you see me?
