It's a long, long way from here to there
Silent shadows over the dateline
We both stare at the same blue moon
Under the sheltering sky

Some say love is the rarest word
Some say truth's just a point of contention
I know we have a love never mentioned
Under the sheltering sky

Will we wake from an endless dream
Will our worlds come tumbling around us
I can hear a silent scream
Crying in the night

Am I fading in your eyes
Is my memory clear as the day we met
For now we must both remain
Under the sheltering sky
Under the sheltering sky
