It’s a Start

It’s a Start

Music, lyrics, and arrangement by Paul Miles Schneider. © 1996.

Tell me you’re feeling the same,
Empty inside, nowhere to hide.
Tryin’ to get back in the game,
Hoping the pain will somehow subside.

There’s a reason you’re so far away.
I keep hoping I’ll know someday.

If I could only find the words,
If I could only touch the stars,
If I could only reach across the sea to your heart.
If I could only capture time,
If I could only hold you close,
If I could understand why you and I are apart,
It’s a start.

Everything leads me to you,
Voices in crowds, faces and names.
Taking each breath to get through;
Sure that I will, everyone claims.

There’s a feeling, it’s hard to explain.
Will I ever see you again?

If I could only find the words,
If I could only touch the stars,
If I could only reach across the sea to your heart.
If I could only capture time,
If I could only hold you close,
If I could understand why you and I are apart,
It’s a start.

I’m closing my eyes, and I see you.
It’s barely enough to get me through.

If I could only find the words,
If I could only touch the stars,
If I could only reach across the sea to your heart.
If I could only capture time,
If I could only hold you close,
If I could understand why you and I are apart,
It’s a start.
