In the calling out to one another
In the sound of the waves and the cries

Carried down the wind from some radio
Ominous and low
I hear the sound of the world where we played
Of the promises we made
If you ever need holding
If you ever need holding
Sky blue and black
Where the touch of the lover ends
There's a need to be separate and a need to be one

And a place I could make a stand
When I'd let go of your hand
Yeah, and I was much younger then
If things were going to end
And the heavens were rolling
And our sky was unfolding
Sky blue and black
And I'd have fought the world for you
Or put aside what was true or untrue
What you needed me to do
But the moment has passed by me now
And just come through for you somehow
If you ever need holding
If you ever need holding

Reflected in each store-front window pane
Of my tires in the rain
You're the hidden cost and the thing that's lost
Yeah and I'll never stop looking for you

That's the way love is
That's the way love is
