She opens her eyes as she greets the brand new day shining through the window and the shadows creeping further up the wall Somewhere across town he’s hit the streets early and often hoping to erase her name her face the way she laughs but oh that smile will be the last to go Opposite sides of the carousel ride Why’s it so hard to meet in the middle? So don’t shy away Curled in a ball she’s been reduced to waiting for something that may never come round the corner he battles his pride and his conscience Is this how it’s supposed to be? Opposite sides of the carousel ride Why’s it so hard to meet in the middle? So don’t shy away I caught the sun in my sails and the wind in my soaking eyes Perched on the sill she watches his every move down below Wanted so badly to sing along to the tune, but neither knows the words Opposite sides of the carousel ride Why’s it so hard to meet in the middle? So don’t shy away

Come over darling, You've been standing all alone in the corner of the room Been eyeing you I must confess Don't let the distance stand in the way of something that could be much more I swear I might just die from it My empty head leads to an empty heart And I've been trying to fill the spaces from the start Wanna tell you What I'm here for What I'm looking for I'm looking for you Breathe in the air The sweet scent of purpose Fills up my insides like a river flowing over its bed I watch your dress, reflecting every moment There ain't no one here that knows you any better than the one you left behind My empty head leads to an empty heart And I've been trying to fill the spaces from the start Wanna tell you What I'm here for What I'm looking for I'm looking for you

The bridge on highway one resting quietly in the sun This feeling of regret when the day is done The bridge on highway one never leaving anyone Tell me if you can how far I’ve come Love’s always in the way. What’s holding you back now? Haven’t you learned that there are, exceptions to the rules that you live by? She’ll tell you when and why it matters, but you know it doesn’t really matter anyhow The bridge on highway one where we can finish what’s begun Tomorrow gets the best of everyone It’s starting to home again The bridge on highway one time’s a-wasting get your gun Eyes peeled, I click my heels and run

The street is like a movie set with the people carefully placed The sights and sounds of a cardboard town are hidden from my face I casually lose my senses to the allure of electricity I've never felt a part of something bigger than me I can play the outsider searching for too long You can be my tour guide, won't you teach me right from wrong Huddled under the Damen Station, people are passing through Will you follow me one day as I followed you? Haven't I told you what you mean? Haven't I showed you what you mean to me? As we're walking side by side, our eyes filled with the night A fatal blow to the strangle hold that squeezes me too tight Climbing into the photobooth we'll raise the bottles high I only wish in retrospect I hadn't closed my eyes Laughing loud as children with no need to justify This once-forgotten youthfulness that makes me feel alive Imagine standing atop those building looking down at us How can something so small seem so serious? Haven't I told you what you mean? Haven't I showed you what you mean to me? I don't think I've changed much for the better I don't think I've changed that much at all I can't tell if I'm getting closer to or further from where it is I want to be But I don't mind I don't think I've changed much for the better I don't think I've changed that much at all I lie awake and I watch you breathing out and in and out again The sunlight brushes against your face and I smile
