The night is so wild
And downstairs the child is sleeping, her spirit is free
For more than an hour I have walked in the rain
I've been wondering what she will be
But where are the heroes, where are the dreams that I had
When I was young?
Am I hoping in vain, just to think she could change anything?
Well, I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you
To bring that sweet gentleness to your world and all that you do
My generation is losing its way, we don't know what we're leaving for you
So may there be millions who feel like you do, oh my love
There is so much to know, there is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world and I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you
Come to me, turn to me, give me your eyes
When you see the mysteries of time
Here there are those who just live in the past
They will never let history lie
And this sad little island is breaking my heart with its dark
Shades of green
And as hard as I try I just cannot see why this should be
There is so much to know, there is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world and I'm counting on you
So may there be millions who feel like you do, oh my love
There is so much to know, there is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world
There is so much to know, there is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world and I'm counting on you
Yes, I'm counting on you
And I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you
Yes, I'm counting on you
