  • I am here, you are there, lying side by side
    Out of touch, out of reach in the great divide
    Parallel lines, ooh
    Hear the rain, count the drops on the window pane
    Wide awake, stale mate, why do we play this game?
    Oh God, I hate this game

    Throw open the doors
    You know my heart is yours
    What are we waiting for?
    Yeah

    Let's be pioneers
    And we'll build our home
    In the great unknown
    Yeah
    Let's be pioneers

    There's a song that we sang on our honeymoon
    I remember all the words but forgot the tune
    Why are we out of tune?
    Let's forgive and let's forgive again
    I'm reaching out to my sweetest friend
    Can we start again?

    Throw open the doors
    You know my heart is yours
    What are we waiting for?
    Yeah

    Let's be pioneers
    And we'll build our home
    In the great unknown
    Yeah
    Let's be pioneers
    And we'll build our home
    In the great unknown
    Yeah
    Let's be pioneers
    Let's be pioneers

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
