Dan:
One light shines in the drive
One single sign
That our house is alive.
Our house, our own
So why do I
Live there alone?

Tell me why I
Wait through the night,
And why do I
Leave on the light?
You know—I know,
Our house was
A home long ago.
Take this chance,
'Cause it may be our last
To be free,
To let go of the past,
And to try,
To be husband and wife,
To let love never die
Or to just live our life.

Take my hand,
And let me take you heart,
Keep it far
From what keeps us apart
Let us start
With a light in the dark.

Dan:
Night falls, Diana:
I stare at the walls. I stare at these walls...
I wake and wander
The halls I get lost in these halls...
And I ache to the bone...
It's like nothing I've known...
Dan & Diana:
I can't get through this alone.

Dan:
Take this chance,
And we'll make a new start
Somewhere far
From what keeps us apart,
And I swear that somewhere
In the night
There's a light
A light in the dark.
