I have lost something
On the way
And I can't explain
What you wouldn't
Want to hear then anyway
Our divine
Sweet divide

So let's just gaze
In the space
Between your face and mine
Our divine
Sweet divide

Divine sweet divide
Fingers touching toes tipped on the wire
Across our great divide
Are we shadows on the wall
And that's all

And should we be as one
I'm sorry
I'm sorry baby
That's not how it works
But don't worry
You worry too much

I love
I love you

Divine sweet divide
Fingers touching toes tipped on the wire
Across our great divide
Divine sweet divide
Divine sweet divide
Divine sweet divide

Only dreams do us part
Only dreams

Only dreams do us part
Only dreams

    General CommentI think the word "divine" is to be taken lterally. There is a theory that God divided itself into imperfect fragments (us), so that the fragments were free to experience the details of creation in a way a complete and undivided God could not. I think that's what Tanya (the hippy) is alluding to here: the necessary divide between her and her lover is the divine gift of being able to reach out and touch him.

    General CommentHauntingly sad and yet beautiful... at first I thought this might be about 2 lovers being apart, but I really think it's about drifting apart and being helpless to do anything about it.

    General CommentIt's defanantly about the space between two people but I"ve yet to decide if its because they are drifting apart or because she is putting the space between them
