Sun beats hard on an empty beach
Where I tried so hard
But couldn't reach the stars
In your eyes

You were just a child when I came to you
And we were friends
Till love stepped in
And you stepped away

I would lie and curse the day
And visit places where we lay alone
And find them turned to stone

Because you hold the heart of someone new
I'll take a chance on time
Hold out here for something true
Standing out of line

But I would wait a hundred years
To hear you say my name
The way you did before he came
The way you will again

I fell apart and you came to me
I never can explain how much it turned me round
Much more than upside down

Cuz you hold the heart of someone new
I'll take a chance on time
Hold out here for something true
Standing out of line

But I would wait a hundred years
To hear you say my name
The way you did before he came
The way you will again

And I love the sun
And I need the rain
And I know the way that you left me
Was only to test me
And I was vain

And I will be strong
And I will be warm
And I will let no one come near me
Until you will hear me
Just once again

Time will wear the mountain down
And make a lover of the clown
Who laughed too long
And colored you wrong

Now I hold the heart of someone new
I'll take a chance on time
Hold out here for something true
Standing out of line

But I would wait a hundred years
To hear you say my name
The way you did before he came
The way you will again
