Through the mud and quicksand
Through the undergrowth and vines
We hacked our way along
We had to crawl, we had to climb

Just what was it that pulled us?
It was not riches, nor was it glory
It was affection, and when we found it
It was sublime

We searched both high and low for what we found in each others’ arms, dear
We quested far and wide, while never knowing that it was so near
Now we are explorers of the heart

Trekking over sand dunes
We braved the heat of desert suns
Knowing that we’d rest, at last
only when we were done

What thing was it that drew us
Out of our homes and onwards and upwards
It was affection, and when we found it,
It was sublime

We searched both high and low for what we found in each others’ arms, dear
We quested far and wide, while never knowing that it was so near
Now there is one place left for us to conquer, one more frontier
Now we are explorers of the heart

In the ocean deep
On the mountain high
In the valley low
Across the river wide
Is where we found it

Climbing over glaciers
Up from the fjords and over ice
Trudging through the snow banks
Relentlessness our only vice

Just what was it that pulled us
Out of our homes and onwards and upwards
It was affection, and when we found it,
It was sublime

We searched both high and low for what we found in each others’ arms, dear
We quested far and wide, while never knowing that it was so near
Now there is one place left for us to conquer, one more frontier
There is no turning back, forget your doubts and ignore your fears
Now we are explorers of the heart
Now we are explorers of the heart
Now we are explorers of the heart

    General CommentThis song is awesome. Most songs about love are cheesy, slow and sappy. And this song is cheesy, but it's quicker-paced and just kinda fun. It makes me smile every time I hear it. ^^
