21 years exhausted and wasted
It seems she works so hard at day
to cry herself to sleep at night
with a colorful mind where confusion lies
with questions of "what is left to live for?"
she kneels at her bed
with her hands to her head
and she screams "I can't take any more."

did I cross this land
to fall right back into your hands?
did I cross this fire
just to tame some selfish desire?
I feel I've given all that I've got to give
can you make me understand?
can you show me how to live?

lapse in time
with 10 years of heartache
and prayers that last all night
a timed trial of testing desire
that starts in your heart
and burns through the rest of your life
a beautiful answer, an awaited encounter
enough just to finally see

why I crossed this land
to fall right back into your arms
why I crossed this fire
just to tame some selfish desire
I know I've given all that I've got to give
I'm starting to understand, I now know how to live

now days are bringing me closer to your love
and I realize I need just you and I
and nights are floating peacefully intertwined
with your white violet starlight sky
I need just you and I

oh it's just you and I
oh just you and I
yeah you and I

did i cross this land
to fall right back into your arms?
did I cross this fire
to tame some selfish desire?
and I'm taming myself with your love
