Lyrics IN EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART
THERE'S A BEAT FOR YOU.
ALTHOUGH WE'RE SO FAR APART
MY LOVE IS TRUE.
IN ALL MY CONVERSATION
YOU'RE MY INSPIRATION.
EVERYTHING I DO
I'LL DO FOR YOU.
IN EVERY BOAST OF MINE
THERE'S A BOAST OF YOU.
IN EVERY TOAST OF MINE
THERE'S A TOAST OF YOU.
ALL NIGHT LONG,
RIGHT OR WRONG,
I'LL KEEP DREAMING OF YOU.
IN EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART,
THERE'S A BEAT FOR YOU.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
I'M NOT AS CRAZY
AS I USED TO BE.
SOME OF MY DEVILS
UPPED AND LEFT ME FREE
TO FIND A QUIET SPACE.
I'M NOT AS OUT OF PLACE.
I'M NOT AS LONELY
AS I WAS BEFORE.
I DON'T GO IN
'LESS THERE'S AN OPEN DOOR
TO LEAVE BY.
I'M STARTING TO BELIEVE
MY OWN EXISTENCE
HAS A RIGHT TO BE,

[Chorus]:
AND I'M COMING HOME AGAIN.
IT'S BEEN TOO LONG A TIME
GETTING BACK WHAT'S MINE,
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHY I WENT AWAY.
BUT IT'S LOOKING NOW
LIKE MAYBE I CAN STAY.

[verse 2]:
THE POETS CRY FOR DREAMS
THEY NEVER SAW.
THE ONLY CERTAINTY
IS NOTHING'S SURE,
AND MOST THINGS
STAY THE SAME,
OR GO BACK WHERE THEY CAME.
AND THOUGH MY ANSWERS
STILL ARE UNDEFINED,
BY TAKING CHANCES
I CAN START TO FIND
SOME REASONS,
SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN.
I CAN MAKE IT THROUGH,
I CAN MAKE IT THROUGH.

[Chorus]:
AND I'M COMING HOME AGAIN.
IT'S BEEN TOO LONG A TIME
GETTING BACK WHAT'S MINE,
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHY I WENT AWAY.
BUT IT'S LOOKING NOW
LIKE MAYBE I CAN STAY.

HELLO MY FRIENDS,
I'VE BEEN NEGLECTING YOU AWHILE.
MAYBE NOW
WE'LL KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER.
TIME HAS A WAY
OF ALWAYS TURNING UP A
SMILE.
NOW I'VE GOT THE TIME TO KNOW YOU BETTER.

'CAUSE I'M NOT AS LONELY
AS I WAS BEFORE.
I DON'T GO IN
'LESS THERE'S AN OPEN DOOR
TO LEAVE BY.
I'M STARTING TO BELIEVE
MY OWN EXISTENCE
HAS A RIGHT TO BE,

[Chorus]:
AND I'M COMING HOME AGAIN.
IT'S BEEN TOO LONG A TIME
GETTING BACK WHAT'S MINE,
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHY I WENT AWAY.
BUT IT'S LOOKING NOW
LIKE MAYBE,
LIKE MAYBE,
LIKE MAYBE I CAN STAY.
