Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning memories trapped in time
The night is my companion and solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here and not be satisfied

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Through this world I've stumbled so many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find the truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles and you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, your words keep me alive

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Into this night I wander, it's morning that I dread
Another day of knowing of the path I fear to tread
Oh into the sea of waking dreams, I follow without pride
Nothing stands between us here and I won't be denied

And I would be the one to hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear [unverified]
