Words and music by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer

The journey has been long
A thousand memories strong
Faced with the night
Not caring who is right
Looking for the laughter that's been gone

How did we used to touch
Why do we think so much
We tire of the words of reflection
And long for affection
For the lovers' rush

Now that we're here after all of these years
Love is calling
Now that we're here so far and so near
Love is calling

Time and again we've tried
To let our feelings slide
Endless negotiations
And unmet expectations
Let's set it all aside

Now that we're here and our motives are clear
Love is calling
Now that we're here--plaintive, sincere
Love is calling

I have been lying still
I have been lying still
Dreaming of the truth

The journey has been long
The candor made us strong
Holding you tonight
In this familiar light
Can we take this sweetness to the dawn

Now that we're here and the walls disappear
Love is calling
Now that we're here and there's no one to fear
Love is calling

Now that we're here after all of the tears
Love is calling
Now that we're here--we're finally here
Love is calling

I have been lying still
I have been lying still
Dreaming of the truth

The journey has been long
The candor made us strong
Holding you tonight
In this familiar light
Can we take this sweetness to the dawn

Now that we're here
And the walls disappear
Love is calling
Now that we're here
And there's no one to fear
Love is calling
