Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
and think of you
caught up in circles confusion--
is nothing new
Flashback--warm nights--
almost left behind
suitcases of memories,
time after--

sometimes you picture me--
I'm walking too far ahead
you're calling to me, I can't hear
what you've said--
Then you say--go slow--
I fall behind--
the second hand unwinds

chorus:
if you're lost you can look--and you will find me
time after time
if you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting
time after time

after my picture fades and darkness has
turned to gray
watching through windows--you're wondering
if I'm OK
secrets stolen from deep inside
the drum beats out of time--

chorus:
if you're lost you can look--and you will find me
time after time
if you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting
time after time

you said go slow--
I fall behind
the second hand unwinds--

chorus: 
if you're lost you can look--and you will find me
time after time
if you fall I will catch you--I'll be waiting
time after time 
time after time
time after time
time after time

Last year my dad had open heart surgery. I woke up at 4:30 the morning of his surgery because I couldn't sleep knowing what was going to happen so I had to listen to music to calm down enough to go back to sleep. This song for whatever reason was the only one that really calmed me down. I listened to it a lot during my dad's recovery, it just helped me through it. I don't know exactly what it is about the song, but something just stuck to me.

I like that song too. :) <br />

what does it mean to you? like what about these lyrics do you connect with?
