When she walked into the room
He didn't feel the passing years
Like a rocket to the moon
That explodes and disappears

His wandering
Chasing the golden ring
Became the same old thing
When she walked in
He stopped wondering
What his life would bring
She was the only thing
The sunset and the moon
And the sunrise

A job was offered overseas
She asked him not to make a choice
What was he to believe
Was there uncertainty in her voice?

Repeat Chorus

There he was on the plane
Rolling down the runway
Rolling down the runway
Why was he rolling away?

On the day of his return
She was waiting at the gate
Now every time her looks at her
He remembers that day

The laughter and the pain
The sunshine and the rain
When fear and doubt are gone
Only trust and love remain

Repeat Chorus
