On the road, fade away
till I don't care anymore
close my eyes and look far away

I reply, every phrase
as plain as it can be
so the words don't get in the way

[ Chorus ]
I dare believe
we stand here forever
just wait and see
it comes together

Your love was like a dream
that fell from the sky
I never thought I'd say good bye

I know it was a lie
that lead us here and now
we go from right to wrong every day

[ Chorus ]

When you went away
took you by surprise
never thought I'd see you again

working every day
to reach the other side
bring you back to where you belong

[ Chorus ]
