Someone longs for you and your caress

He’s learning now how empty arms can be

Someone who used to know your kiss not long ago

That someone happens to be me

How he misses you and must confess

Without you he’s like driftwood on the sea

He’s just a dreamer who is still in love with you

That dreamer happens to be me

I’ll never know just why we parted

It’s more than I can comprehend

I only know when you departed

You started a night that has no end

Perhaps there’ll come a time when you’re alone

Your heart still haunted by a memory

If then you chance to find there’s someone on your mind

I hope it happens to be me

Perhaps there’ll come a time when you’re alone

Your heart still haunted by a memory

If then you chance to find there’s someone on your mind

I hope it happens to be me

I hope it happens to be me
