If you knew,
What I know,
Would you try?
Before your time
Has run on you
And worn you down

Would you know,
What you desire,
In your heart?

If you knew,
What I know,
Would you try?

Is there time?
Is there time?
To follow just one desire?

Is there time?
Is there time,
To follow your heart?

Dress your wounds
Test your strength
Face the night

Crave the touch
Feel the pain
Know the signs

Is there truth,
In your pain?
You decide

If you knew,
What I know,
Would you try?

Is there time?
Is there time?
To follow just one desire?

Is there time?
Is there time,
To follow your heart?

As we lie
In the shade
Of poison trees

Are we as safe
As we let
Ourselves believe?
