We tip-toed around the subject
As though we had some things to hide
You fought to hide the truth
And I smiled for your disguise

Now all that we gave up
Was it truly ours to give?
When I gave you heaven
And you gave me
You gave me the will to live

I watched you from a distance
A pillow’s width away
I watched you from a distance
It was nearer than today

You travel ’round the world
Just to avoid my stare
I thank God it’s round
I will always
I’ll always be right there

You questioned with a touch
And I knew just what you meant
We laughed illumination
As we shone with all we’d spent

Now all that we gave up
Was it truly ours to give
I gave you heaven
And you gave me the will to live
When I gave you heaven
And you gave me
You gave me the will to live

We tip-toed around the subject
But there’s nothing left to hide
