The moon shines cold with ice tonight
And I can see your face now in the violet light
And though you're a thousand miles away
I can hear you clearly
I hear every word you say
(chorus)
I JUST CAN'T BREAKAWAY
NO MATTER HOW I TRY
I JUST CAN'T GET AWAY
I JUST CAN'T FIND NO PEACE OF MIND ANYWAY
I have dreams that I don't understand
They're all tangled up like your hair in my hands
And though you're a thousand miles away
I can see you clearly
I feel every breath you take
(REPEAT CHORUS)
The moon strikes fear in hearts of men
And I thought I would never see your face again
And though you're a thousand miles away
I can hear you clearly
I tremble with every word you say
(REPEAT CHORUS X 3 TO FADE)
