Lyrics

Well I wonder where you are tonight
And where will you be tomorrow
I've got a hundred dreams I want to share with you
And a thousand more to come

But no dream lasts forever
Nor do they all come true
So I hope in your mind
You want to share them too

Where can I go just to be with you
How can I fly above the moon
What can I do to hold your hand
And keep your fears at bay

Well its hard to lose you
When you're still around
Harder than when you're far away

I wish I could find a way
To touch your face
Kiss you goodnight and make you feel safe

But I know that you're gone
I'll never see you again
Yet I see you wherever I go
I hear your voice on the evening wind
And I feel you in my soul

Where can I go just to be with you
How can I fly above the moon
What can I do to hold your hand
And keep your fears at bay

Its so hard to lose you
When you're still around
Harder than when you're far away
But I know that you're still so very far away
So far away and gone
And gone
