In the quiet silent seconds
I turned off the light switch
And I came down to meet you
In the half light the moon left
While a cluster of night jars
Sang some songs out of tune
A mantle of bright light s
Shone down from a room
Come down in time I still hear her say
So clear in my ear like it was today
Come down in time was the message she gave
Come down in time and I'll meet you half way
Well I don't know if I should have heard her as yet
But a true love like hers is a hard love to get
And I've walked most all the way and I ain't heard her call
And I'm getting to thinking if she's coming at all
Come down in time I still hear her say
So clear in my ear like it was today
Come down in time was the message she gave
Come down in time and I'll meet you half way
There are women and women and some hold you tight
While some leave you counting the stars in the night

    This is a song about a man's fantasy woman. He's dreaming about her & remembering her & promises she's made that are unfulfilled. The man knows there are good women out there who would be there for him but this woman's the one who's got his heart & mind - she is his obsession.
