He Is The One    ( 1999 )


Ran through her dreams last night, as she does sometimes

beyond the comfort of the day

She saw him just ahead, before she tumbled down

Suddenly she is awake, dismissing phantoms

runs to find him in the dark

pulls the curtain wide and she can feel the spark

He turns his head and he is smiling and she knows


He is the one who will be there, when all the world just doesn't care

He is the one who knows the way - can turn her night back into day


She's learned so many things and tasted nothing

waits like the swallow on the wire

puts by her picture books - they can't feed her desire

Outside the gate she turns and tears are rolling

She's never felt this kind of pain

She hopes there'll be a time they can come home again
