he wakes up and he checks to see if she's still there
he thanks the stars for another day
he builds his walls all around as high as he can bear
so he's prepared for when she awakes

he needs a challenge if he's going to ease the pain
he needs to think about something that'll take him away
he needs a challenge like a shelter from the pouring rain
if he's to balance the weight, the weight , the weight

she's such a diamond and all he wants
is her to shine, her to shine
but she's her own island and he's the sea

and his waves keep washing away the dirt
his waves keep washing away the dirt
but he can't move her

he takes a walk but he dares not to go too far
he needs to stay in contact
he wants to talk about the chains that lock him down
but he reverts to the old act

I need a challenge if I'm going to ease the pain
I need to think about something that'll take me away
I need a challenge like a shelter from the pouring rain
if I'm to balance the weight, the weight , the weight

she's such a diamond and all I want
is her to shine, her to shine
but she's her own island and I'm the sea

and my waves keep washing away the dirt
my waves keep washing away the dirt
but I can't move her
