out of memories you walked in
to my life, to my life
out of the elevator, and i said "it's you"
walking down the hall, walking down the hall

-hold me tight, through the long night
angles and prophets will arise
on rainbow wings, and in your dreams,
i'll kiss you, and sing a lullaby

all the illusions that i'd lost
like ships on the horizon, ships on the horizon
almost lost and storm tossed
but you walked down the hall to me.

-a river flows, in your dark eyes
a choir sings, and your shy smile
makes me dream, through the ling night.
rain on the window, "hold me tight"
