Lyrics
The day must come for us to begin
The ways away from the craze we're in

These hands are yours
Baby to hold in your own
Now don't let them go
Don't leave them alone

I'm not a child of righteous birth
I live my pain for all it's worth

I never wanted
Baby to bring you down
To grind and pound
You into the ground

You are the shine in the hollow of my eye
And my time whiles by faster with you by my side

Don't want for you to lose the smile
(shine in the hollow of my eye)
That keeps my heart apart from the bile

So run within
Baby fly with my brain
Enter the realm
Of mental strain

What comes ahead is something I fear
(shine in the hollow of my eye)
I am what you feel and not what you hear

Now love and life and I
We don't get along
So help me be strong
Where I don't belong

You are the shine in the hollow of my eye And oh my pain slithered away
Hey baby, when you asked me to stay

You are the shine in the hollow of my eye
And my time whiles by faster with you by my side
Faster with you by my side
Faster with you by my side
Faster with you by my side
