k.d. lang - Till the Heart Caves In Lyrics

Stood together in an open field
And share the secrets of the night reveal
Then we chase the light
Racing through the sky

Can we untangle guilt and innocence
How hard we torture this ambivalence
Night will bring no dawn
Where's the power gone

For I'll steal your dreams while you are sleeping
And sell them for dust and cheap lust
And I'll turn your hope while you are weeping
And cover your eyes with sad lies and dark skies

Come closer to me on your hands and knees
Alone when your will's gone
How much is not enough how much is through
How long will I be getting over you
How much grief and sin
Till the heart caves in
Till the heart caves in
Till the heart caves in
