a lifetime lyrics – vertical horizon

we met as two total strangers
as many lovers often do
but who could have ever seen the danger?
i didn’t know i’d fall in love with you

you are this lonely picker’s daydream
like a wish that’s wishing to come true
so liberty, just know i’m waiting
to share this love song with you

but do you think about me when you’re lying in his bed?
won’t you take the time to explain?
do you ever think you’d rather be with me instead?
or do you only think about me when it rains?

we shared some special nights together
we said we’d watch the morning rise
but when the sun was all around us
wasn’t nothing i hadn’t seen in your eyes

i try so hard to keep it hidden
but i am hurting deep inside
for every time i’ve seen you smile
there are two times that i have cried

but do you think about me when you’re lying in his bed?
won’t you take the time to explain?
do you ever think you’d rather be with me instead?
or do you only think about me when it rains?

now and forever my love will be the same
i will be waiting underneath the pouring rain
