Lyrics - Lasting Song

Back

Won't be the first time you sit alone

Won't be the first time you wait by the phone

Won't be the last time you drift away

To some place we were such a long time ago

We would move like ghosts in the night

Always looking for some cause to fight

You'd always look for some cool James Dean type

We tried to make it

Like it was up on the screen

You know, only fools believe

What they cannot see

And only fools put their hands in the fire

Again and again

To see how it feels back in

CHORUS

No, I don't want to hear you say

That it won't happen like this anymore

And while the radio plays

I'll sing that lasting song again

And again

We're shadows dancing from a fires embrace

Where time is passing in a wild nights race

You are the moon and I'll be the sun

Forget about who has lost and who's won tonight

You know, only fools believe

What they want to see

And only fools put their hands in the fire

Again and again

To see how it feels back in

CHORUS

Though I'm miles away

I can still hear her say

Play that song for me

Once again she said

The one thing that gets me high

The one that keeps me strong

Through another day

Into the lonely night

Again and again

Won't be the last time I sing you that song

Under these lights so far from home again

CHORUS (two more times)
