Let's not drag this out
Though I've only ever loved you kind
I remember when I met you
I thought one day you'd probably just come home

And still go on pretending
You'll ever see that happy ending
And sensing my resistance

Had to learn the hard way
For hope alone to fill
I know I'm a dreamer
So I'll give you that
Still I hope I'm more than just a place
You laid your hat
You're a land of secrets
Its only citizen
And though I paid my dues
I was never allowed in
And so I am a stranger
Especially today
As I get sad and lonely

Were looking for your distance
You had to do your will
That we were just an empty dream too big

We never stood a chance
So I could only wait
(watch you slip right through my hands)
And sensing my resistance

I had to learn the hard way
For hope alone to fill
