You came to me
and talked of skies
of blues and blacks and lilac fields
i thought that only i could see
inside, my heart and mind
opened myself to hurt too much from you

My want for you exceeds my will
I open up just once too much
to break this stone around my heart
you'll see, you're just like me
Every man dies, not every man ever really lives

I place my trust implicitly
with no thought of my self
i give my love without condition
for others i remain strong

i walk with you, hand in hand
my anger cast aside
our feet upon the sand, i look behind
your hand so soft in mine
i look into your eyes, and know
this time i am alone

i dont want to close my heart, my mind
my need for you exceeds my common sense
i try to see it your way, and failing once again
i pray for light, my hope resides within me still
my want for you exceeds my will
every man dies, but i, i want to live
i need to know, is there something worth fighting for
please dont leave me alone

i want to live, to rise above
above this world, above my self
i want to live, free from my soul
to soar above my intellect
and see the truth that lies behind it all.
