Here I stand so patiently
For your lights to shine on me
For your song inside of me
This we bring to you


In the shadow of love
Time goes by leaving me helpless
Just to reach and try
To live my life
These are my reasons, so
Here we stand so patiently
For your song inside of me
For your lights to shine on me
This we bring to you
One, one, in a million

    Steve Perry wrote this while waiting in a Denver hotel room. It's about him wanting to be in the band. I love this song!!!
