Behind the Lines
I held the book
So tightly in my hands
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

You gave me no warning
You gave no reason
But I was with you
Right by your side
Just give me the strength
And I can help you
They can try their hardest
They don't frighten me

It's written in the book

It's hotter than I've known 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
You could make it right

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

Whatever happened to you
It's too late to change now
There's nowhere you can run to
No place to hide
Ah, 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
Don't wanna go
But I'm losing all control

Can't you see me
I'm slipping away
I can only stay
If you've the will
To keep me here

It's written in the book

Oh, so many times since then
I've read those words
Just waiting to see you
Can you see me?
