Where have you gone my darling one
Are you on your own
Are you having fun
Is there someone to hold when you need it bad
Is it uncontrolled like the love we had

Does the day go by like a memory
Do you ever try to remember me
In an automobile or a crowded bar
Well I hope you're all right wherever you are



And if you're still within the sound of my voice
Over some radio
I just want you to know
You were always my only choice
And wherever you go
That I still love you so
If you're still within the sound of my voice

In the dead of night
Do you hear me call
Something's not quite right
No one's there at all
Did you make a mistake
Was it in your head
Or was it really me talking
To your heart instead

And if you're still within the sound of my voice
Watching this video
I just want you to know
That it always made me rejoice
Just to have you so near
There's a place for you here
If you're still within the sound of my voice

I am calling like the echo of a passing train that cries
One last time before it fades into the distant hills and dies
I am sending out a message like a ship out on the sea
In distress but only you can send a lifeline out to me

Are you still within the sound of my voice
Why don't you let me know
I just can't let you go
If it's wrong then I have no choice
But to love you until I no longer have a will
Are you still within the sound of my voice

I am calling like the echo of a passing train that cries
One last time before it fades into the distant hills
And dies
