Your pressed your face against my heart
I felt that you could look right through me
We live in days that have no time
We live in times that now refuse me
And somewhere out beyond his town
There lies a world that now can turn us round
And we need it and we need it
Oh got to have some thing to believe in
I've got enough to believe in you
What can I give just to know that it's true ?
But I've gotta begin to say
Now they've taken my pride in this way.
How can you give me your love ?
I just can't give you enough
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust ?
I feel to thin before your eyes
I feel so naked under open skies
I once stood tall within this town
But now the time has come to bring us down.
We musthave more with his power in hand
We must believe things will go as we planned
But I've gotta begin to say
Now they've taken my pride in this way.
How can you give me your love ?
I just can't give you enough
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust,
With a handful of dust ?
Making love through electric skies
Now I know where my fortune lies
Breathe the air and feel this land
'cause it's slipping through me
Like dust from my hand.
How can you give me your love ?
I just can't give you enough
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust ?
How can you give me your love ?
I just can't give you enough
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust ?
How can you give me your love ?
How can you give me your love ?
Now give me your love!
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust ?
How can you give me your love ?
Give me
How can you give me your trust
With a handful of dust ?
