lyrics

Can I write a melody you’ll hear
When the way that my words reach you isn’t clear
They get caught in paradigms and prayers

Falling off the spiderweb between us
Brushstrokes and a sweet embrace
Never are enough to build on
When the same foundation isn’t there

There are different reasons why we’re living
And they come between us when we’re leaving
Even loving hearts can only stretch so far

Hide behind a cross again
Neither God nor the Devil can conceal you
Look at the people standing on the street
Why must everyone know before you see

Tenderness is pouring from your fingers
And your hands are full of love
So be careful not to let it all run out
While you’re looking at the sky

There are different reasons why we’re living
And they come between us when we’re leaving
Even loving hearts can only stretch so far

So much that I’ll never understand
And so much of me that you’ll never know
Watch each other from another world
Sending something across ten thousand miles

There are different reasons why we’re living
And they come between us when we’re leaving
Even loving hearts can only stretch so far
