Here we stand
In the broken promise land
Hand in hand,  
Neither one of us can understand
Incomplete, dreamers on a one way street
Dazed, confused, defenceless

We were lovers in a sea of rain
Drifting on the tide
Cruising on an open plain
Touching down and taking flight but how can we be that again
There's nowhere left to hide

Sins, regrets
Forgiven but we can't forget
Silhouettes, our colourless and empty faces cannot accept
This fading truth
That we keep on running to 
Is vanishing from view
And I'm weak, I'm restless

We were lovers in a sea of rain
Drifting on the tide
Cruising on an open plain
Touching down and taking flight but how can we be that again
There's nowhere left to hide

Cold, discreet
Secrets hidden underneath 
Bittersweet
Smiling at a face, a face you don't believe
Days we swore
In whispers through an open door
Long before the rain, the storm
The ending

A friend becomes an enemy
The winner cleans the slate
A plan so meticulous, there's nothing more to calculate
A clock displays a time to strike
And love turns to hate

And how long can we wait
In the broken promise land
In the broken promise land
