Survivor – When Seconds Count lyrics

(Jim Peterik/Frankie Sullivan)
Can't remember just how it ended
I'm hazy as to how it began
Crazy how our lives got so tangled
Now we're simply silent partners again
Secretly walking a tightrope
Come fall into the arms of the past
'Cause it's still the same me
Still the same you
Who swore those promises would still ring true...
So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And you're suddenly so lonely
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me
Special moments taken for granted
Tenderness that found no reward
Funny how you'd speak of forever
Only to wind up restless and bored
Can sweethearts so suddenly strangers
Recapture in a moment the fire
Well, it's still the same me
Still the same you
The same two children deep down it's true...
So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And you're lost and feelin' lonely
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me
When your dream dies hard
And you're stranded out on the boulevard
I'll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me
I'm going back in time to how it used to be
(instrumental)
Now it's a race with time
Until I change your mind
So when your heart cries out
In the middle of a sleepless night
And you're lost and feelin' lonely
When seconds count
Count on me, count on me
When your dream dies hard
And you're stranded out on the boulevard
I'll be there in a heartbeat
When seconds count
Count on me, you can always count on me
