ask me again

ten years from tonight

ask the stars in the desert

with no moon in sight

remind me how

we looked out from this table

far as we were able to see

remember us then

looking passed sight

counting our chances

could we be right?

question so strong

answer so weak

who would ever believe

we’d believe?

chorus :

did we do all we could?

would we do it again?

when the passage of time

was all that we had

ask me again

ten years from tonight

ask the stars in the desert

with no moon in sight

bridge:

tell me again

did we lean on ahead

was tomorrow a crutch

we never knew that we had

ask me again

ten years from tonight

did I tell you your future

did you tell me mine?

chorus :

did we do all we could?

would we do it again?

when the passage of time

was all that we had

ask me again

ten years from tonight

ask the stars in the desert

with no moon in sight

will we be alright

ten years from tonight

so looking back

ten years from tonight

does everyone stumble

pressed into life

do questions survive

answers arrive

like stars in the desert

with no moon in sight

chorus :

did we do all we could?

would we do it again?

when the passage of time

was all that we had

ask me again

ten years from tonight

ask the stars in the desert

with no moon in sight

yes, we’ll  be alright

ten years from tonight
