(Bridge)
As simple as breathing
I picture your face
All tangled in daydreams
And shielded with grace
I feel you beside me again


Wherever you may be
Lift up your head for me
There's somewhere in my heart
Only for you
If I must do without
I'll let these sparks fly out
Across the wilderness
From me to you

As certain as sunrise
Your image unwinds
You're clearer than crystal
You fill up my mind
Now I have you
By my side

Wherever you may be
Lift up your head for me
There's somewhere in my heart
Only for you
Though continents divide
And lonely thoughts collide
Our heaven will allow
No distance now

I can always close my eyes
Take your absence by surprise
Hold my breath and make believe

(Bridge)
As simple as breathing
I picture your face
All tangled in daydreams
And shielded with grace

There's somewhere in my heart only for you
If I must do without
I'll let these sparks fly out
Across this wilderness
From me to you

(Chorus)
Wherever you may be (Wherever you may be)
Lift up your head for me (Lift up your head)
There's somewhere in my heart(somewhere in my heart)only for you
If I must do without (If I must do without)
I'll let these sparks fly out (oooh)
Across this wilderness from me to you (Across this wilderness from me to you)

Wherever you may be,...(Chorus fades out)
