If I Could Be Where You Are~

Where are you this moment ?
only in my dreams .
You're missing , but you're always
a heart beat from me .

I'm lost now without you ,
I don't know where you are .
I keep watching , I keep hoping ,
but time keeps us apart .

Is there a way I can find you ,
is there a sign I should know ,
is there a road I could follow ,
to bring you back home ?

Winter lies before me ,
now you're so far away.
In the darkness of my dreaming ,
the light of you will stay ,

If I could be close beside you ,
If I could be where you are ,
If I could reach out and touch you ,
and bring you back home ,

Is there a way I can find you ,
Is there a sign I should know ,
Is there a road I could follow ,
to bring you back home to me .
