I used to dream about the heroes of stories
As life became an endless night
When hope was gone you resurrected my spirit
Brought me from darkness into light

I can sense a storm is coming
Anchoring you to me

Far beneath my skin and bones
I harbor my divided soul
My greatest source of strength
Might be my downfall
But love was not a choice to me
I held my breath and took a leap
And when I lose myself
You help me stand so tall

I listen closely and hear sweet strains of music
I’m captured in a reverie
Through all these years you’ve been my quiet salvation
Reflecting who I want to be

Please for my sake no more talk of
Blessings and curses tonight

Far beneath my skin and bones
I harbor my divided soul
My greatest source of strength might be my downfall
But love was not a choice for me
I held my breath and took a leap
When I lose myself
You help me stand so tall

Standing in silence we look out at the water
Amazed how much the world has changed
I see behind your eyes such wisdom and sorrow
You’re wondering if we’re still the same

I felt more love than I could
Give in just one lifetime

Far beneath my skin and bones
I safekeep our united souls
My greatest source of strength is not my downfall
Because love was not a choice for me
I held your hand and took a leap
I’ll never lose myself
You help me stand so tall
