Lyrics Behind the Lines

I held the book so tightly in my hands
I saw your picture
Heard you call my name
There was something strange
I could not look away
I wanted to be there
I wanted to go
You gave me no warning
You gave no reason
But I was with you
Right by your side
Just give me the strength and I will help you
And they can try their hardest 'cos they don't frighten me
It's written in the book
It's hotter than
I've known before but I feel so cold and I don't know why
But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm then I really believe you could make it right
Ooh the time has come now
We must show our feelings
But I'm looking right through you and your heart is empty
Whatever happened to you it's too late to change now
There's nowhere you can run to
No place to hide
Ah you let me down
But wait a minute
I don't understand
It's getting stronger so grab my hand
Don't wanna leave you
Don't wanna go but I'm losing all control
Can't you see me
I'm slipping away
I can only stay if you've the will to keep me here
It's written in the book
Oh so many times since then
I've read those words
Just waiting to see you
Can you see me
