I can't see my way when shame is covering my eyes.
Carry a flame for me that I might make it;
Faltering forward as the time.
I can leave no traces
Or I can move the stars in space;
But I can say nothing for the weight of the action that lies like scars upon my face.
But I will say for you anything you need to hear ...
I mean it;
Take the longing from these restless eyes
And keep it for as long as you need it.
I mean it;
Take the longing from me.

I won't see you changing should you remember me somehow.
What in the world would make me feel that way
When nothing on earth would make me now?

All I ever wanted was something that I have never seen.
And all that I ever offered was something that I have never been;
But I will play for you any part you need, my love ...
I mean it;
Take the longing from these restless eyes
And keep it for as long as you need.
I mean it;
Take the longing from me.

I can't make things right, baby
But you know that I will try.
Say that I waited from now till forever;
Say that my tongue should never speak;
Say that I stayed here and lay down beside you;
Say that I buried my mouth in your hair.
