Words by Christopher Cross and Will Jennings
Music by Christopher Cross

Keeping it straight is still the hardest part
Living the truth inside your heart of hearts
I sang a song that you believed
You came inside -- don't ever leave
You are the one who really matters

I had a dream that carried me
You are the one who set it free
You are the one

And around and around and around
The world has always turned
I wanted warmth -- your love burned
You gave it all -- I won't do less
Maybe you know but I'll confess
That you are the one who really matters

I had a dream that carried me
You are the one who set it free
You are the one
We see the things no one else can see
There is a way for you and me
We will be the ones

And in the music
There are words that say
Everything that you feel today

Every time I'm lost out in the night
I look for memories of light
You are the one I want to see
You are the one who reached for me
You are the one who really matters

We saw the things no one else could see
There was a way for you and me
We were the ones

And when someday comes along
The love we gave will still go on
We will be the ones
