Lyrics

It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand
It's in the way it has to reach us
It's in the restless of the shifting sand
And all the truth it has to teach us
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there

From edge to edge we take our pleasure
We follow blindly each insane command
Judged by some eternal measure
O I'll never understand
O and peace is child to no-one
We're held together by an endless strand
First to be woven then to be undone
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there

Soon all the promises are broken
And expectation passes underhand
And not a gentle word is spoken
O I'll never understand
It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand

Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there
