Album: Stranger In Us All (1995)

  • I search for her in the dead of night
    A silhouette lit by candle light
    In a whispered word she is gone
    Familiar stranger without a name
    In a darkened room they all look the same
    Like the sand of time she slips away so far away
    In the mirror you can see her face
    An angel dressed in the blackest lace
    A sip of wine and the game can begin
    Just an image lost in fantasy
    Then you touch her and you can't break free
    Till you see your fate written there in her eyes
    Oh Ariel,
    Lost in a distant dream, take me home
