Here beside me your breath is like a lamp through dark lands
Here beside me I can feel the peace of Zion in your hands
Down below you I tell you, "I'm doing the best that I can"
Down below you, I tell you, "Girl, I'm trying to understand"

I just wish there was some kind of stone that I could hold to make
Everything alright
But sometimes stones can't change the moonlight
Sometimes stones can't make the dark bright

Giving to you is like a gift from above
Living with you is like a blessing of God's love
You say you need your space, you say I'm in your face
Want to tell you I'll protect you, but I know it's not my place

I just wish there was some kind of stone that I could hold to make
Everything alright
But sometimes stones can't change the moonlight
Sometimes stones can't make the dark bright

I hold you in my arms and say, "A penny for your thoughts"
But you keep them to yourself; you say, "Your lesson should be taught"
You look at me so easily saying, "Love me like a man"
But I'm as strong as God said I was, so I never understood
At night, we're making love and it's deeper than the sea
But you look at us together, say "There's you and then there's me"
I never want to leave you, but I know deep inside
That truth is like an ocean and I can’t hide

I just wish there was some kind of stone that I could hold to make
Everything alright
But sometimes stones can't change the moonlight
Sometimes stones can't make the dark bright
