They said that it would happen, we weren't listening
You were hanging on my words, I felt you touching me
That was all that mattered

Then I got a new job, we got a new house
If I had to work late, I tried to take you out
It didn't make it better

Suddenly it hit me when we said "I need you”
It didn't sound right, we were hurt and confused
Fragile as the breath of a candle
Staring in silence at the tower of Babel

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Why do lovers grow apart?
Why do lovers grow apart when they want so badly to be one heart?

You said you didn't want to keep me from
All the good things I was always dreaming of
Were you just getting tired of me around?

It finally brought me to my knees
Another ultimatum to a deity
Save this love or I won't believe
(Do you hear me?)

Suddenly it hit me: there was nothing left for us
Every bitter word, another breach at trust
Old wounds attacking like a jackal
Running from the hills at the tower of Babel

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
Why do lovers grow apart?
Why do lovers grow apart when they want so badly to be one heart?
