Where are you tonight-
The one Iím dreaming of?
The one to make things right-
The one whom I could love.
The one who was appointed-
To walk near to my side...
I wonder as I write this...
Just where you are tonight.
Are you home, dear, with a family
And feel so out of place?
Are you in some squalid barroom
Your life abject disgrace?
Do your long frustrated passions-
Make you scream, and sob, and fight?
Do you need me like I need you?
Where are you tonight?
I know you are a dreamer....
Do your dreams portend of me,
Do you love me, and desire me-
A man you cannot see?
Do you stumble in lifeís darkness-
A soul bereft of sight...
Are you calling to me, darling?
Oh, where are you tonight?

Beautiful, I can feel the longing in this one. Who hasn't felt this way before?

Gunslinger, this is so beautiful!

What can I say about this? How many times I have wondered the same things. Love it!
