You breathed infinity into my world,
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl,
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night,
Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind,
We'll grow old and you'll be stronger
without him" but oh,
Now my world is at your feet,
I was lost and I was found,
But I was alive and now I've drowned,
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song,
So they can tell me I was wrong

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
Any bindings from the world outside that room,
And they weren't taken by the hand,
And led through fields of naked land,
Where any pre-conceived ideas were,
Blown away,
So I couldn't say "no"

You sighed and I was lost in you, Weeks could've past for all I knew,
You were the blanket of the over-world and so I couldn't say,
I wouldn't say "no". But they all said, "you're too young to even know,
Just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him"
But oh, now, my world is at your feet,
I was lost and I was found,
But I was alive and now I've drowned,
So now I will be waiting for the world to Hear my song,
So they can tell me I was wrong

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare,
Of any bindings from the world outside that room,
And they weren't taken by the hand and led through fields,
Of naked land where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away,

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare,
Of any bindings from the world outside that room,
And they weren't taken by the hand and led through fields,
Of naked land where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away,
So I couldn't say "no"
