Did you ever believe a dream was real,
Like a magical surprise...
So you live off what you feel,
Just a glimpse of paradise...
Then you wake and find it's gone
And all that's left you is the song...

Just the wanting alone is worth it
Just the thrill and desire...
Just the wanting alone is worth the fire
Just the wanting alone is worth it
Just the thrill and desire...
Just the wanting...a lone desire

I remember when I was seventeen
And my life had just begun...
All I needed was a dream
And I always found me one
But the dream, it always died
And the joy is in the change...

Just the wanting alone was worth it
Just the thrill and desire...
Just the wanting alone was worth the fire
Just the wanting alone was worth it
Just the thrill and desire...
Just the wanting...a lone desire
Just the wanting...a lone desire
