He walked up the stairs, towards where he instinctively knew she was.

When he reaches the roof, he sees her leaning against the side, looking down from the high sky rise.

Lying in my bed, I hear the clock ticks, and think of you.
Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new.
Flash back, warm night, almost left behind.
Suitcase of memories.....
Time after....

"It's nice up here," she says to him, acknowledging his presence.

"I know," He replies, walking to stand next to her. He looks down and across, trying to find out what she finds so fascinating that her eyes haven't left it yet.

Silence moves between us, as we both continue to stare from the roof of this building.

"How long has it been, Nat?" He asks quietly.

"Ninety days," Natalie answers, turning towards him.

Sometime you pictured me, I'm walking too far ahead.
You're callin' to me, I can't hear what you've said.
You said, "Go slow, I fall behind "
The second hand unwinds.....

"Really? Feels like it's been longer," He replies.

She smiles, and takes his hand in between hers, intertwining her fingers with his.

"Here we are again, though," She says, smiling.

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.

"Did you think I would leave?" He responds, pulling her closer.

"Sometimes, I wondered..." She says, a mysterious grin shines on her face.

"Never. I never would have. You're too precious..." He tells her, pulling her close, and giving her a hug.

I turn, my picture fades, and darkness has turned to grey.
Watching through windows, you're wondering if I'm okay.
Secrets, stolen, from deep inside,
The drum beats out of time.....

Her eyes shine of tears as he pulls his head down slightly, and kisses him tenderly.
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.

He pulls her closer to him yet again.. and kisses her so tenderly.. that it almost takes her off of her feet.

"Natalie, I'll love you.. and I will never leave. Not now.. not never," He tells her, holding her gaze with his eyes, filled with compassion, and love.

"Do you mean it, Danny.. do you really mean it?" Natalie asks.

"Of course...I'll never play you for a fool," Dan replies.

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.

She pulls him into a kiss, that shows him a world he never knew existed... and then pulls away slowly.

"I'll be everything for you.. your love.. your friend... anything you want... all I want is that you love me back," Natalie murmurs, looking again into his eyes.

"I promise," Dan answers.

Time after time.
