Suddenly We're Both Alone

That distant day
when you and me were younger.
The ball room lights were low.
And all your friends
were hovering around you.
I closed my eyes and wished.

And suddenly we're both alone.
I prayed we would be.
And later when I walked you home
with stars above me
you said you loved me.

A memory,
a treasure as a picture.
Across the room you stand.
And all my friends
are making jokes around me.
You see me close my eyes.

And suddenly we're both alone.
You prayed we would be.
And later when I walked you home
with stars above me
you said you loved me.

So long ago
and now you've left me waiting.
It is goodbye for now.
I walk alone
beside our running river
and all around is mist.

And suddenly a star from space,
a light above me.
A shock and then I see your face,
you say you love me.
You said you loved me.
