"Elsewhere" as written by and Sarah Mclachlan....
I love the time and in between
The calm inside me
In the space where I can breathe
I believe there is a distance I have wandered
To touch upon the years of
Reaching out and reaching in
Holding out, holding in
I believe
This is heaven to no one else but me
And I'll defend it as long as I can be
Left here to linger in silence
If I choose to
Would you try to understand?

I know this love is passing time
Passing through like liquid
I am drunk in my desire
But I love the way you smile at me
I love the way your hands reach out and hold me near
I believe
I, I believe

This is heaven to no one else but me
And I'll defend it as long as
I can be left here to linger in silence
If I choose to
Would you try to understand?

Oh the quiet child awaits the day when she can break free
The mold that clings like desperation
Mother, can't you see I've got to live my life the way I feel is right for me
Might not be right for you but it's right for me
I, I believe
This is heaven to no one else but me
And I'll defend it as long as
I can be left here to linger in silence
If I choose to
Would you try to understand it?
I would like to linger here in silence
If I choose to
Would you understand it?
Would you try to?
Would you try to understand?

    General CommentIn this song, I see myself because to everyone else, the things I see as perfect are ones they don't like to see because they're too dramatic or they're too upsetting or controversial and I see it as my heaven. I guess I'm very optomistic. Anyhow, I totally relate to this song and hope it has the same impact on others.
