- LyricsThere's something in the air tonight
A feeling that you have that could change your life
There's something burning up inside
I reach out for you and our hearts collide
With hearts on fire I reach out to you tonight
- LyricsAll the girls I've known are crying
All the clouds have silver linings
Though the days are counting backwards
I know that you have the right words
Me and you
- LyricsYes, no, maybe is all I need to hear from you
If things go crazy, she's lost herself and lost to you
Now that nothings spoken, she's out there on the ice again
She's breaking down slowly, colliding as she holds your hand
You don't know what to do
- LyricsThis is why we won't delay for your birthday
Secrets that we held that day will be kept straight
All your friends have gone away, so let's celebrate
Your holding hope open for the one, making you wait
Lights and music, are on my mind
- LyricsOne thing that I just can't conceive
Is how to let you go.
And if you will stay with me
Then we will always know.
We will find out
