Oceans


OCEANS

Between my heart and yours Lie oceans wide and deep We aren't brave enough to sail across the swell

Between my heart and yours Lie soaring mountain peaks We aren't brave enough to rise above them all

Even when I tried to help you see You became mad enough to bring our hearts to heel I sent a ship to ferry you But you were too stuck in what you knew to believe it's true

Between my truth and yours Lie frozen icy shores We aren't brave enough to feel the space between

Between my truth and yours Lies an angry ocean's roar We aren't brave enough to speak above the din

Even when I tried to help you see You became blind to the hand that reached out for you And I sent a ship to ferry you But you were too stuck in what you knew to believe it's true

I've given all I can And you try hard not to understand And I won't play a pawn in the game at hand

I can't place my trust in you For you refuse to rewrite what you think is true And I no longer fit into the world you drew

Because even when I tried to help you see You became mad enough to bring our hearts to heel And when I sent a ship for ferry you You were too stuck in what you knew to believe... to believe that it could be true for you too ---
