(Kim Carnes)

A familiar story
A sad affair of the heart
We spend all this time
Trying to find
The glow in the dark

Gentle changes
The eyes still look the same
A familiar heartbeat
I go weak
When you walk in

I'm hangin' on by a thread
Too many voices in my ear
Too many memories locked in here
I'm hangin' on by a thread
Too many voices in my ear
We hurt each other
And wonder why
We lie broken in two

I was dreamin'
You were here with me
And through a open window
We could look through
Straight to the sea

I'm hangin' on by a thread
Too many voices in my ear
Too many memories locked in here
I'm hangin' on by a thread
Too many voices in my ear
We hurt each other
And wonder why
We lie broken in two

And if I lose you now
Lose you now
