KIM:
Last night I watched him sleeping
my body pressed to him
and then he started speaking
the name I heard him speak...was Kim
yes I know that this was years ago
but when moonlight fills my room I know
you are here... still

KIM:
I still
I still believe
you will return
I know you will
my heart
against all odds
holds still

yes, still
I still believe
I know as long as I can keep believing, I'll live
I'll live
love cannot die
you will return
you will return
and I alone know why

(in a bedroom on the other side of the world, in America. A woman is
sitting beside CHRIS who is sleeping. She is ELLEN, CHRIS' s wife)

ELLEN:
last night I watched you sleeping
once more, the nightmare came
I heard you cry out something
a word that sounded like... a name
and it hurts me more than I can bear
knowing part of you I'll never share
never know

but still
I still believe
the time will come
when nothing keeps us apart
my heart, forever more
holds still

(CHRIS wakes up from his sleep with a cry. ELLEN takes him in her
arms and calms him)

ELLEN:
it' s all over, I' m here
there is nothing to fear
Chris, what' s haunting you?
won' t you let me inside
what you so want to hide!
I need you too!

KIM & ELLEN:
for still
(I will hold you all night, I will make it all right)
I still believe as long as I
(you are safe with me and I wish you could tell what you don't want to tell )
can keep believing, I'll live
(what your hell must be)
I'll live
(you can sleep now)
You will return
(you can cry now)
and I know why
(I'm your wife now)
I'm yours
(for life)
until we die
(until we die)

(In America, CHRIS holds ELLEN; in Vietnam, KIM is alone in
her room.)
