"Can't stay within a vaulted cell." should read "can't stay within our vault to dwell"...
Time's come for us to part
And think of living as it was
Into the future we must cross…
Must cross

I'd like to go with you
And I'd like to go with you

You say I'm harder than a wall
A marble shaft about to fall
I love you dearer than them all
Them all

So let me stay with you
So let me stay with you

And as we walked into the day
Sky's of blue have turned to gray
I might have not been clear to say…
To say

I'd never look away
I'd never look away

And though I'd I'm feeling you inside
My life is rolling with the tide
I'd like to see it be an open ride

Along with you
Going along with you


The time we'd borrowed from ourselves
Can't stay within our vault to dwell
And living turns into a lender's well

So let me come with you
And let me come with you

And when we came out into view
And there I found myself with you
When breathing felt like something new
New

Along with you
Going along with you

    General Commentpretty clear meaning about moving on from the wreckage of the times but wanting that someone to still be in your life

    one lyric correction: "Can't stay within a vaulted cell" should read "can't stay within our vault to dwell"
