I got a hole in my pocket
I got a tear in my heart
I got a door I can't unlock it
I live on shadows in the dark

I hear the sound of a heartbeat
I hear a secret in the rain
It's like the kiss of a lover
It's like a stranger knows your name

I'm gonna rock on the water
I'm gonna dance on the flood
I'm gonna lay down with the wind
And believe like a child
I feel the swell of the tempest
I feel the passion of a soul
Like there's a storm comin in
A storm of love going wild

And when the thunderheads start beating like a drum
And the thunder cracks the sky in two
The wind is gonna blow and the rain is gonna come
And the river's gonna run

I wanna walk on a wire
An unbroken line
I wanna live when I die
And shake my soul loose from time
I wanna ride with the angels
On that invisible street
And leave my footprints in the sky
And feel the stars beneath my feet

Gonna take the train that's gonna get me there
All the tracks behind me are burning in the air
The cure is gonna kill me but I don't care
