Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through Late one night I heard you at my door But I pretended like I wasn’t home Please forgive Me for what I’ve done But you know I would’ve done it Like I did before Ray of light Won’t shine through What can I do What can I do Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through

Lost my way It's alright Lost my way It's alright I've been dreaming of love And we're so close And we're so near Oh when we touch Oh we disappear Lost my way I don't care Lost my way I don't care I've been dreaming of love And we're so close And we're so near Oh when we touch Oh we disappear

No one knows No one knows And I can't find a witness To watch the river As it flows away No one knows No one knows And I ain't finding out Where the river goes As it flows away

Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside Walked away Released from all my sins Walked away Released from all my sins But the cruelest thing Was all my suffering When I held you that night I knew it felt so right I knew it felt so right Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside

Well, hello there My it's been a long, long time How am I doin'? Oh, I guess that I'm doin' fine It's been so long now but it seems now That it was only yesterday Gee, ain't it funny how time slips away How's your new love I hope that he's doin' fine I heard you told him that you'd love him till the end of time Now that's the same thing that you told me, seems like just the other day Gee, ain't funny how time slips away I gotta go now I guess I'll see you around You don't never know, never know When I'll be back in town But remember what I tell you In time, you're gonna pay And it's surprising how time slips away

Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend Love is my only devotion Ten little steps to the ocean Ten nights to decide Whether I can live alone Ten nights all alone Praying you haven’t gone I can’t stop love I can’t erase What’s been written down Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend

If I could I'd put away my sorrow I wouldn't wait until tomorrow To let you know how I feel If I could I'd look you in the eyes And it wouldn't be a surprise I would know what to say But I'm afraid Of what's at stake Of what a love like This could do Oh it's my fate To hesitate From saying I love you But I would if You said you'd never leave This little promise always to keep This broken heart that wants you If I could Every time you held me close Remembering when love at most Burned in flames Died away If I could I'd take you by the hand And I'm sure you'd understand Why it is I want you so But I'm afraid Of what's at stake Of what a love like This could do Oh it's my fate To hesitate From saying I love you But I would if You said you'd never leave This little promise always to keep This broken heart that wants you

She knew it was all over When she turned her back On her used-to-been She knew it was all over When she turned from him She turned to me What's for me to say I see that you've been crying Your old man's arms Like to bear their fists But my arms have hands like the graceful mist And all they want to do is hold you

Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus If you hear my last breath Don't leave me here Left to die a lonely death I know I have sinned But lord I’m suffering Jesus, oh Jesus If you hear my last breath Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone All my troubles All my pain Will leave me once again

I got a message tonight It was on my machine She said, I quote, "Hope you're not asleep 'Cause I'm in my bed And the lights are dim And the air is hot So won't you come on in" I got a message tonight It was on my machine But I got home too late I couldn't even see That the stars above Deter me from love 'Cause she's in her bed And the lights are dim And the air is hot So won't you come on in

Holding hands down by the shore And I know God knows it feels so fine Holding hands down by the shore And I know God knows it feels so fine I said I loved you 
I said I loved you Holding hands down by the shore Leaned over and whispered in your ear But I lied, I lied I couldn't love you if I tried Holding you in my arms In my bed God knows it feels so fine Holding you in my arms In my bed God knows it feels so fine I said I loved you I said I loved you Holding you in my arms In my bed I whispered in your ear But I lied, I lied I feel so dead inside I couldn't love you if I tried

One time long ago When the sun had dimmed it's glow When the clouds were filled with Rain and cold That was a long time That was a long time A long time ago Love has left me all alone Her secrets left they're better left untold Why oh why she left I'll never know But that was a long That was a long time A long time ago That was a long time A long time ago
