Lord, if you answer prayers like mine Would you care to take the time To remind me that I'm lost & out of love I'll wait for your words to come through me While I wonder if God is watching over us from someplace up above If you can hear me with your eyes Perhaps you could see me by listening closer, darling Wait and see Maybe we'll find our golden key Lord, if my time has come and gone If I'm destitute and wrong Please remind me that I'm lost without a sail I'll chase every fish hook down the road As I wonder if God is walking next to me or standing on my tail If you can see my as I am Perhaps you could tell me by holding me closer, darling Wait and see Maybe we'll find our golden key If you remind me that I'm probably going to die I'll wake in the morning and I'll tell you the usual lie I don't believe in miracles, but I'm trying to make a change I'm beginning to think I'm drifting out of range If you can hear me with your eyes Perhaps you could tell me listening closer, darling Wait and see Maybe we'll find our golden key

TV Theme 01:17
Deep within the valleys of a planet far from me Far beyond the mountains and the sparkling purple sea Little men and ladies live in perfect harmony And you'll feel right at home when you arrive If you fly past the moon in your big red balloon You may find that the dust starts to clear If you fly past the stars left of Jupiter and Mars Then it won't be too long 'til you're here And don't let every fading light make your heart grow dim You may find out that their heart is hurting too And though you're many miles away There's a world of friends just waiting here for you

Well, I could never do what you're doing without me I'd miss the moments of being alone But you change my mind when you talk so kind With the sound of your voice when you whisper my name through the phone Who knows if I'll love you Or if I'll love anybody at all But when I dimmed by bulb and the nights got cold Well, I was hoping that you'd give me a call If I'd a way just to get on my own two feet I wouldn't stand with my back to the wall And you've seen that I'm here so it's perfectly clear That you can't kick a dog and expect him to get you the ball I think that I'm lonely I think I know that I'm hurting a lot I keep my sad eye searching the same old streets I've got to pray I can give it a shot Help me, Juliet The story really doesn't need to end like that Help me, Juliet Is it safe to assume that the planet is starting to crack? I spend my time running over the same old things I wish I knew how to give it a break But these familiar days are just paving the way For a life in the sun where I give even more than I take I'm caught in a moment I think I know how I'm gonna react Well, it's a terrible shame to be stuck in a game Where you know that you can't fight back You've gotta help me, Juliet The story really doesn't need to end right here Help me, Juliet I think the answer is perfectly clear You've gotta help me, Juliet The story really doesn't need to end like that Help, me Juliet Is it safe to assume that the planet is starting to crack?

First time caller But I've been listening for a long time I've been tuning into your frequency And now you've got me on the end of your line At first I heard your voice And now I picture your face in my dreams You see, it's harder to mix when you're out in the sticks But with you it's not as bad as it seems Out there Out there on the airwaves Our love, spreading for miles and miles around I don't care if it's delusion I'll believe what I want to believe When the record is out of the sleeve When the needle skips directly to my heart First time caller You know I'm never gonna touch that dial I don't care what you play it's the things that you say That really start to make me smile And if you're free tonight I've got a feeling we would get along We could stop for a bite at the diner tonight If I'm not coming on too strong Out there Out there on the airwaves Our love, spreading for miles and miles around I don't care if it's delusion I'll believe what I want to believe When the record is out of the sleeve When the needle skips directly to my heart First time caller I've got a record that I'd love you to play It's an upbeat tune about the light of the moon And loving 'til the break of day And I've been trembling You know that it's strange to hear your voice so clear And my radio light's a little brighter tonight As I'm pressing the phone to my ear Yes, I'm pressing the phone to my ear You know, I'm pressing the phone to my ear Out there Out there on the airwaves Our love, spreading for miles and miles around I don't care if it's delusion I'll believe what I want to believe When the record is out of the sleeve When the needle skips directly to my heart

If you come to me for a moment I'll be happy to call you my friend But I'll keep and eye on the passing of time Cause I know that's going to end If you thrust me into the spotlight I'll be standing and waiting 'til dawn There's no use in reading the rest of the lines I'll repeat them when everyone's gone I'll repeat them when everyone's gone I think I'm alone Lock all the doors and I unplug the phone Heaven forgive the walls that I've built up around my home You can make me bend for a moment But I'll snap right back into place I'll abandon the games and extinguish the flames Cause I haven't the heart for the chase I present myself on a platter For one or two people to see But as they come near I recoil in fear Cause there's someplace that I'd rather be Oh yes, there's someplace that I'd rather be Someplace I'm alone Lock all the doors and I unplug the phone Well, Heaven forgive the walls that I've built up around my throne Those walls that I've built up around my throne
