If I built you a temple
from the bricks of my heart
Would you stay there forever
never to tear us apart
If I gave you a mountain of gold
would you beg me to let you in, ooh would you?
To share our dreams of the days to come
and to find a place where we both will run ooh yeah!
If I built you a temple
yeah would you beg me to let you in
If I built you a temple
Would you try to stay within oh no!
If I built you a temple
The soul I give is all I've got
If I gave you my soul to keep
and to treasure it with pride
Would you stay in these arms girl
And never to let it slide
If I built you a staircase
to the heavens within
would you share the light
under garden trees
to walk a million miles
in the land of the free ooh yeah!
If I built you a temple
would you beg me to let you in
If I built you a temple
Would you try to stay within
If I built you a temple
Ooh no, the soul I give is all I've got yeah!
You know it's all I've got
Through you're a million miles
away from me
our love's so close as any love can be
and when I'm feeling down
I know you'll be there yeah!
Like a flower born in the early spring
Just I need of love and the gifts you bring
So sister above - I think I'm in love
yeah If I built you a temple
would you beg me to let you in
If I built you a temple
Would you try to stay within oh no!
If I built you a temple
The soul I give is all I've got yeah!
If I built you a temple
would you beg me to let you in
If I built you a temple
Would you try to stay within oh no!
If I built you a temple
The soul I give is all I've got
