Feel like frozen roses on an ice field in the polar night
'Cause I can't get through to you
Feel like an airplane lost in the fog, horizon out of sight
'Cause I can't get through to you
Feel like weeping and laughing at the same time
'Cause I love you and can't get through
Feel like my oldest faded jeans, like a broken rhyme
'Cause I love you and can't get through

Still there's hope left, only time will tell
Won't stop hangin' around, if it gives me hell
Won't stop tryin' to convince you all I feel is true
And I won't stop runnin' around with you
Maybe some day the message will come through

If it takes a thousand years
And if it takes a million tears
If it takes my sleep away
I'll try to turn night into day
If only you would say
I love you

Feel like climbing up a ladder with no rungs to stick to
And I can't get high
Feel like running on a boardwalk stuck with glue
People pass me by
Feel like walking on a tightrope with blinded eyes
Still I don't fall down
Feel like telling myself over and over all the same old lies
They don't change my frown

Still there's hope left, only time will tell
Won't stop hangin' around, if it gives me hell
Won't stop tryin' to convince you all I feel is true
And I won't stop runnin' around with you
Maybe some day the message will come through

If it takes a thousand years
And if it takes a million tears
If it takes my sleep away
I'll try to turn night into day
If only you would say
I love you
