This broken wheel is coming undone
And the road's exploding
But you're keeping me strong
Rolling along with you
Love is a tower, and you're the key
Leading me higher, when you let me in
Keeping us close (so close)
Oh, on down the line
Sometimes I burn like a dot on the sun
With no one knowing
But you're keeping me strong
Moving along with you
You are a tower, of strength to me
The darkening hour, sees light again
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah
You are, you are, you are, you are
You are...
Love is a tower, of strength to me
I am the shoreline, but you're the sea
The sea
You are, you are...

    General Commenti think this is the 1st or 2nd best song on Riot Act right along with LBC and they should release the single if they wanna sell more records

    General CommentProbably the. most. romantic. song by Pearl Jam. I love me, it's just Matt's ode to his partner/lover/wife type thing.

    General Commentif you see it live it sounds amazing - the 2guitars are much clearer & eddie sings very high at part & matt sings low parts - ONE OF THEIR BEST SONGS LIVE, and we all know they're a live band

    General Commenta matt cameron song that could be the best song on a very underrated album-if it is second to anything, it is thumbing my way(which is better live)

    General CommentI love this song so much. Just puts me on a high if ya know what I mean. Possibly one of the most underrated pearl jam songs. Everyone listen!

    really hard to figure out by ear on guitar though.
