I hold you in my arms, that’s when it starts
I seek faith in you kiss, and comfort in your heart
I taste the seed upon your lips, lay my tongue upon your scars
But when I look into your eyes, we stand worlds apart

Where the distant oceans sing, and rise to the plain
In this dry and troubled country your beauty remains
Down from the mountain roads where the highway rolls to dark
’neath allah’s blessed rain, we remain worlds apart

Sometimes the truth just ain’t enough
Or it’s too much in times like this
Let’s throw the truth away, we’ll find it in this kiss
In your skin upon my skin, in the beating of our hearts
May the living let us in, before the dead tear us apart

We’ll let blood build a bridge, over mountains draped in stars
I’ll meet you on the ridge, between these worlds apart
We’ve got this moment now to live, then it’s all dust dust and dark
Let love give what it gives
Let’s let love give what it gives
