On And On

Midnight
Low tide
I’m sleepless
Dreams escape me
Holding on
’Til dawn comes
Blowing in
On a cruel wind
When did love go away
In the night I long for you

Been down
In lonely town
Cold streets
Empty faces
I’m broken
The night rolls in
Blowing in
On a cruel wind
Who hears me when I cry
In the night I’ll cry for you

So tired
Another mile
I’m hopeless
Peace escapes me
Hanging on
I’m fading fast
I’m blown along
By a cruel wind
When did you go away
In the night I searched for you

Rainstorm
Coming on
Blinded
Sight eludes me
My heart aches
Someone speaks
Small voice
On a cruel wind
“I’ll never leave your side
In the night I’ll carry you”

Through the pain of a broken heart
When my world is torn apart
Your love goes on and on
Down a string of empty years
Through the night
Through all my tears
Your love goes on and on

*For Cheri

On And On
