If you could see me now;
The one who said that she'd rather roam
The one who said she'd rather be alone;
If you could only see me now

If I could hold you now; Just for a moment
If I could really make you mine
Just for a while turn back the hands of time;
If I could only hold you now

I've been too long in the wind; Too long in the rain
Taking any comfort that I can
Lookin' back and longin' for the freedom of my chains
And lyin' in your loving arms again

If you could hear me now;
Singin' somewhere through the lonely night
Dreaming of the arms that held me tight;
If you could only hear me now
I can almost feel your loving arms again
