I held the book so tightly in my hands,
I saw your picture, heard you call my name
There was something strange, I could not look away
I wanted to be there, I wanted to go

You gave me no warning
You gave no reason
But I was with you
Right by your side
Just give me the strength, and I will help you
And they can try their hardest, cos they dont frighten me

It is written in the book

It is hotter than Ive known before, but I feel so cold, and I dont
Know why
But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm
Then I really believe, you could make it right

Ooh the time has come now
We must show our feelings
But Im looking right through you
And your heart is empty

Whatever happened to you its too late to change now
Theres nowhere you can run to, no place to hide
Ah you let me down!

...but wait a minute, I dont understand
Its getting stronger, so grab my hand
Dont wanna leave you, dont wanna go
But Im losing all control
Cant you see me? Im slipping away
I can only stay if youve the will to keep me here

It is written in the book

Oh so many times since Ive read those words
Just waiting to see you, can you see me?
