Lyrics
Ever, there's oceans between us, take to the sea, take to the sea
Ever, there's heaven before us, float on the waves, float on the waves
Pale moon lay belief on me, mother, come give me birth
You give me heaven and I'll promise you the earth

Heaven lays on your pillow, sleep in your eyes, sleep in your eyes
Heaven lays in the waiting, steal every moment, hold every breath
Gentle hearts beating as one, dream for the beauty of birth
You give me heaven and I'll promise you the earth

I'll die for you, if the time ever came
Kill for you and shoulder the blame
I'd cry for you and never feel shame
For the child is within you, for the child within

Precious, I want the earth for you
Precious, I hold out my hands to touch the sky
And only the pure go to heaven
Suffer the child unto you, forever more, Heaven on earth

Bless me, my Goddess of love for all your blessing is worth
You give me Heaven, and I promise you the earth
I pray for the second coming, worship you for the first
You give me Heaven and I give you the earth

You give me Heaven and I give you the earth
You gave me Heaven and I give you the earth
