  • 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

    [Chorus]
    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

    [Chorus]

    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

    [Chorus]

    I'll 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
