When I think like the world's gone mad
And I need you so bad
But I dont' know where you are
I cry these tears

On our own, we've been so far
We've sworn at the moon
And we've counted a million stars
My love's still true

Friends have come and gone
Some have left me alone
But I've stared at these walls before
And they made me blue

All along in my heart I've known
There's one thing in my life
That still rings true
I can count on you

Count on you to be there
No questions in the air
No asking why or when
No looking back
Count on you everytime
To ease my worried mind
And you'll fall over me, important to me
My miracle find

If I have to choose one place
To spend the rest of my days
Anywhere would do
Long as it's close to you, oh woh

Count on you to be there
No questions in the air
No asking why or when
No looking back
Count on you everytime
To ease my worried mind
And you'll fall over me, important to me
My miracle find

Now, oh now
I've travelled so far
Yet I'm right back where you are
Just me and you

Now and forevermore
As the years roll by
I'm beginning to see that I
Can count on you

    This song means so much to me, specially when my special someone left me and he decided to go back to his place , this is the very first time i felt this kind of emptiness in my whole life, i never noticed that my tears felt down from my eyes. Beh i understand why you do this, but i never stopped wishing that someday we've met again to face all challenges in life, the two of us will conquer all of those challenges.
    Beh, i will not forget all our sweet memories in baguio when we first met,
    Beh where ever you are always remember that im always at your side to help and to ease all the pains, i do promise that i can be your crying shoulder. Beh if you want me, you know where to find me .
    Beh i really missed you a lot, i love u so much.
    Ill always promise that i will not change, and hope you do the same. I will wait till you come back. I love u, and this song is for you... Zel38

    I rember this song summer of 1985, i don't care it's lyrics then, but now looking back the lyrics, omg it happended to me at one point in my life...
    For me it's about remembering a special friend, tha you wish is still there when laughter turns into cryin and joy into sadness and happiness to pain, so deep, very emotional song. And still you wish that someone will somehow comes back to you even as a friend...
