Do you know you take my breath away,
Do you see the way you make me feel.
God, I want you so desperately ...
I'm to the point I would beg, borrow, and steal.
I didn't intend for this to happen,
I didn't plan on feeling so attracted to you.
This fantasy has become my reality ...
and I'm lost in knowing what to do.
I didn't know this was gonna be so hard,
Why do you have to be so far away.
There are so many obstacles to overcome,
Fate has dealt a hard hand to play.
I'm always trying to remind myself ...
there is so much we still have yet to see.
And I have to be honest and realize,
if you knew the truth, you'd let me be.
I wonder if you knew my depth ...
if the intensity would scare you away.
I wonder if you knew my need,
if you would even want to stay.
I feel so many things tonight ...
I don't even know who I am.
There are so many things that hold me here,
but right now I simply don't give a damn.
So I sit here alone, confused and consumed ...
wondering if I'm on your mind like this ... or even if at all.
And I'm holding my breath and praying ...
while looking for a soft place to fall.

The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
