You meet a great guy - he's headed in one direction, you're headed in another (and I don't mean that figuratively!). It happened often while I was in the Army, but not all of them inspired me to write a song. I've always felt this was one of my better sets of lyrics...

Lyrics

The candles flicker softly as you kiss me -
I can see your blue eyes shinin' in the glow.
You lay me down, and slowly start to love me
in that special way that makes me want you so.
The wall I hide behind for all the world to see
is just paper in the hands of one who knows.
And as you gently take that wll apart, I start to cry,
'cause soon I know, I'll have to say goodbye.

And I'll go far away, then you'll go farther still.
I'll hold you in my heart, and wonder if you will
come back to me someday to say your search is done,
and that your heart has no more doubt that I'm the one.

For both of us the past had left us hurting -
It made it hard to trust in love again.
I've heard it said, and now I can believe it -
Two people can be lovers, and be friends.
But still you say you feel that something's missing,
and you thing that you alone can find the key.
And when you tell me that you love me so, I start to cry,
'cause soon I know, you'll have to say goodbye.

And I'll go far away, then you'll go farther still.
I'll hold you in my heart, and wonder if you will
come back to me someday to say your search is done,
and that your heart has no more doubt that I'm the one.

I know that I can't hold you, but someday you will see
that what you're looking for just brings you back to me.

Then I won't go away, and you'll be closer still.
I'll hold you in my arms, not wondering, 'cause you will
be back with me that day to say your search is done,
and that your heart has no more doubt that I'm the one.
You'll be back with me that day to say your search is done
and that your heart has no more doubt that I'm the one.
