You seek the other half of your soul
As beautiful as can be
One to make you lose control
One to finally make your life whole
And I wonder if it could be me.

I'm standing at the back of the crowd
On tiptoe just to catch a glance
Surrounded by others screaming loud
Bloodied by fate but yet unbowed
I wonder if I have a chance.

The walls you've built around you
Are higher than I can climb
You say you want a love that's true
To experience the world anew
But will you find me in time?

All my life I was too far out
Drowning in a blackened sea
I screamed until I was too hoarse to shout
And I can hear you beyond all doubt
But I wonder if you can hear me.

We may walk a different road
But I'll always count you my friend,
And should your patience in me erode
Or my back finally break beneath its load
I'll meet you at the end.

My voice is but one among endless calls
But I was a fan from the start
Above all else I want you to know that until the barrier falls
I'll be standing out beyond the walls
But I hope I'm inside of your heart.
