Testo behind the lines - genesis

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 can help you

They can try their hardest
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



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 hten I've read those words

Just waiting to see you
can you see me
