Through the years
We have come so far,
Working hard at finding out who we are,
And all those tears
Were only there to show us the way
And even now
In spite of what we know
We can end up hurting each other so,
Do you know how
To forgive me for the things that I say?
(You see) Like a baby when it’s crying,
I am only trying
To find the secrets in your heart.
And if I get too close for comfort
Well, please don’t run for cover
And leave me standing at the start.
We are the river, see how it’s flowing –
And there’s no way to stop it growing,
So, let it happen . . . just let it happen.
I tried to hide
The longing deep inside,
Filled the emptiness with my foolish pride
And even then
I could not leave my shadow behind.
But I found out
That to get you’ve got to give,
And I don’t know no better way we can live
Than the pride you lose
Is equal to the love that you find.
