I dream a day that god will surface
To retrieve his nails and open your heart.
You'll say you’re mine for the ages
Just open your heart and say

"I swear on the cross"
Can you promise this to the grave you'll take my name can you promise me?

Overseas and over mountains
A thousand years I've waited for her
To say the lines "from this day forward"
Just open your heart and say

"I swear on the cross"
Can you promise that to the grave you'll take my name?
Can you promise me?

All this time I've prayed for this day to come true,
No one knows how deep the waves we waded through.
I wish I could take your hand and make it true.
Cause no one knows how far apart we've stayed to get through.

I wish I could take your hand and make it true.
Cause no one knows how far apart we stay to get through.
Can you say "I swear on the cross"
Can you promise that to the grave you'll take my name?
Can you promise me?

    General CommentI agree it sounds like a song written for that someone you want to marry. Chino, the man with many hats.

    General CommentInteresting world they the man is from...mechanical, polluted, riding a fake horse. They leave her world of flowers, grass, seaside, and family to a hard-surfaced metal looking environment. At the end, he looks like he''s constructing a heart for her and she shows signs of becoming mechanical too--

    General Comment"how far apart we've stayed to get through"
    sounds like a couple who have had to go about taking care of business in their own worlds - that it took some time to get things in order so that they could be together. Excellent song - expressing love so beautifully.

    Dead and unconscious so you get it. Wants to make her life true(can't judge people though, probably shouldn't characterize either. Almost another reference to a person maybe already in hell or dead
