I will always be here...I will always look out from behind these eyes...It's only a lifetime, It's only a lifetime, It's only a lifetime.

You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpseOut of the corner of my eye.I turned to look but it was goneI cannot put my finger on it nowThe child is grown, The dream is gone.I have become comfortably numb.

Strangers passing in the street By chance two separate glances meet And I am you and what I see is me. And do I take you by the hand And lead you through the land And help me understand The best I can.

There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

Was it love? Or was it the idea of being in love?

How I wish, how I wish you were here...We're just two lost soulsswimming in a fish bowl,Year after year....Running over the same old ground.What have we found?The same old fears.Wish you were here.

For long you live and high you fly But only if you ride the tide And balanced on the biggest wave You race towards an early grave.
