Behind The Lines


Genesis - Behind The Lines


Held the book so tightly in my hand


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


But you gave no reason


And you gave me no warning


But I was with you

Right by your side


Just give me the strength


And I can help you


And they can try their hardest


'Cause they don't frighten me


It is written in the book


The sun is hotter now

Than I felt 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

We gonna make it right


The time has come now


We gotta show our feelings


But I'm looking right through you

And your heart is empty


But whatever happened to you


It's too late to change now


'Cause there is nowhere you can run to no place to hide

Ahh 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 now I don't wanna go

But I'm losing all control


Can't you see me

I'm slipping away

And I can only stay

If you've the will to keep me here oh Lord


It is written in the book


Oh so many times since then I've read those words


I'm waiting to see you can you see me


Oh tell me can you see me
