When Seconds Count Lyrics

by Survivor

Can't remember just how it ended, I'm hazy as to how it began
Crazy how our lives got so tangled, now we're simply silent partners again
Secretly walking a tightrope, come fall into the arms of the past
'Cause it's still the same me, still the same you
Who swore those promises would still ring true

So when your heart cries out in the middle of a sleepless night
And you're suddenly so lonely
When seconds count, count on me, count on me

Special moments taken for granted, tenderness that found no reward
Funny how you'd speak of forever, only to wind up restless and bored
Can sweethearts so suddenly strangers, recapture in a moment the fire
Well, it's still the same me, still the same you
The same two children deep down, it's true

So when your heart cries out in the middle of a sleepless night
And you're lost and feeling lonely
When seconds count, count on me, count on me

When your dream dies hard
And you're stranded out on the boulevard, I'll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count, count on me, count on me
I'm going back in time to how it used to be

Now it's a race with time, till I change your mind

When your heart cries out in the middle of a sleepless night
And you're lost and feeling lonely
When seconds count, count on me, count on me

When your dream dies hard
And you're stranded out on the boulevard, I'll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count, count on me, you can always count on me
