MYSTERY GIRL RUNS AWAY -
TO A HARLOT CITY'S HARD EMBRACE -
SEEKING WHAT'S BEEN ADVERTISED -
ALL THE LIFE THAT'S BEEN DENIED-
A FEVER BURNS IN EVERY JOINT-
A PLEA IN EVERY NEEDLEPOINT-
COMMUNION -
CAN YOU HAVE A PERFECT LOVER WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING LOVE?
CAN YOU SEE A BRIGHTER FUTURE WITHOUT SEEKING WHAT YOU HIDE?
AND I UNDERSTAND THAT SIMPLE TRUTH IS DEEPER THAN IS WIDE -
STILL I KNOW…
SOMETIMES ITS HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
SOMETIMES ITS HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
MYSTERY GIRL WALKS ALONE-
THROUGH THE DOORS A HUNDRED OFFERINGS MADE -
HEAR THE ECHO, TOUCH THE WOOD -
AS A DEEPER LONGING LONGS FOR GOOD –
AND AS THE CANDLE LEAVES YOUR HAND -
FEEL THE WARMTH AND UNDERSTAND -
COMMUNION -
CAN YOU HAVE A PERFECT LOVER WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING LOVE?
CAN YOU SEE A BRIGHTER FUTURE WITHOUT SEEKING WHAT YOU HIDE?
AND I UNDERSTAND THAT SIMPLE TRUTH IS DEEPER THAN IS WIDE-
STILL I KNOW…
SOMETIMES IT HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
SOMETIMES IT'S HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
AND YOU'RE WANTING TO BELIEVE-
SOMETIMES IT'S HARDER THAN IT SEEMS -
SHAME IS LIKE A BLISTER EVERY STEP WILL MAKE IT WORSE -
AND THE VESSELS OF YOUR GREAT ESCAPE HAVE ALL BUT DISAPPEARED -
AND YOU HEAR THE SAVIOR CALL YOU TO A LIFE BEYOND YOUR MEANS
AND I KNOW EVEN A SIMPLE FAITH IS HARDER THAN IT SEEMS- IT SEEMS-
CAN YOU HAVE A PERFECT LOVER WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING LOVE?
CAN YOU SEE A BRIGHTER FUTURE WITHOUT SEEKING WHAT YOU HIDE?
AND I UNDERSTAND THAT SIMPLE TRUTH IS DEEPER THAN IS WIDE-
STILL I KNOW
SOMETIMES IT'S HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
SOMETIMES IT'S HARDER THAN IT SEEMS-
AND YOU'RE WANTING TO BELIEVE -
SOMETIMES IT'S HARDER THAN IT SEEMS -
