  • Lyrics
  • There's a story in my eyes
    Turn the pages of desire
    Now it's time to trade those dreams
    For the rush of passion's fire
    I can feel you tremble when we touch
    And I feel the hand of fate
    Reaching out to both of us
    I've been holding back the night
    I've been searching for a clue from you
    I'm gonna try with all my might
    To make this story line come true
    Can ya feel me tremble when we touch
    Can ya feel the hand of fate
    Reaching out to both of us
    This love affair can't wait

    I can't hold back, I'm on the edge
    (I can't hold back)
    You voice explodes inside my head
    I can't hold back, I won't back down
    Girl it's too late to turn back now

    Another shooting star goes by
    And in the night the silence speaks to you and I
    And now the time has come at last
    Don't let the moment run too fast
    I can feel you tremble when we touch
    And I feel the hand of fate reaching out to both of us
    There's a story in my eyes, turn the pages of desire
    Now it's time to trade those dreams
    For the rush of passion's fire

    I can't hold back, I'm on the edge
    (I can't hold back)
    You voice explodes inside my head
    I can't hold back, I won't back down
    Girl it's too late to turn back nowWriter/s: FRANK SULLIVAN, JIM PETERIK
