Day by day, my-why heart
Right from the start
Tearing us apart
Hour by hour, my-why soul
Love takes its toll
More than you can know

Loving like I never wanted to
Now we're here I don't know what to do
Loving love isn't loving you
But nothing looks the same
When you're calling out my name

Hour by restless hour
I tell the dark
It's only just a spark
Night after longing night
'Til there's no more wrong or right
And nothing's worth the fight
Of loving in the shadow of desire
Caught between the fury and the fire
Day by day until we've satisfied
The longest night, side by si-ide
And love won't be denied

Day by day, we steal
All that is real
From everything we feel
Hour by hour, the heart
Learns how to start again
Calling you friend
Captured by the shadows of desire
Living in the fury and the fire
Higher and higher-er
Day by Day-ay
Day by-why day
Day-ay by-why day
Day by-why day (fade)
