Lyrics
The rift in our bed is seven miles wide
though I see you as though you were here right beside
I'm trying to reach out but it's just in my mind
my body's too tense and too stiff to unwind
The rift in our bed is seven miles deep
the edges are sharp and the walls are so steep
and if I could throw myself out like a dove
could the peace that I offer ever substitute love

So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay

Punishing you is harder on me
though it's double the torture that you don't even se
that the rift in our bed is seven miles wide
and I'm on the edge and have been for a while

So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay

I've nothing to cry for but I'm crying inside
as the rift moves you farther away from my side
I want to reach out but I'm just too darn proud
will you build me a bridge and I will come around
So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay

I know you care
I know you still want me here
in the morning
by your side
when it's dawning
And I will share
all that I feel
if you hold me till the morning baby
we can carry each other one more day
So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay

Finally your breathing is heavy and deep
you didn't bother and now you're asleep
And I'm still awake with a rift in my heart
but if I could speak now
where would I start

Maybe I'd say there's a rift in out bed
or maybe the rift is just in my head
I know if you'd tell me I'd know what to say
and you'd hold me and make all the pain go away

So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay
So hold on for the night for the day
hold on for the night will not stay
