Lillian Axe – The World Stopped Turning lyrics

I watched you bathing in the moonlight

I heard you crying in the wind

Oh, every day is just another symphony

Of angels singing praises in your name

Look up, can't you hear them calling

It wasn't very long ago

That you and I believed in the same things

And now it seems, you've put our love behind you

And turned away before you understood

You can run, but you can't hide


Can't you see I'm falling down

Thanks to things I never knew

Don't you know I'm tryin' hard

To take this love from you

Oh, the skies are falling

And the seas are drying

Oh, oh, can it be?

The world stopped turning on me

Well, I see you still but that's just fantasy

I hear you call to someone else

Oh, gazing at a distant cold reflection

And crystal lakes of tears I cried for you

Trying to keep this hope alive
