Lyrics


Any Second Now

She remembered all the shadows and the doubts

The same film

Vivid pictures like a wall that's standing empty

And the night so still

Such a small affair a relapse someone closing

Like the nightclub door

Here again and when you speak I watch you move away

And seem so sure


She is hoping to forget and the moment

Almost slips away

When the colours move apart and I wonder

If you want to stay

And I need to change you like the words I'm reading

Don't you understand

This the warning and the message I remember

As you touch my hand
