  • How long can lovers stand
    To prove they were right?

    Why did I fold my hand?
    Why choose another fight?

    How long would we have gone
    To know we shouldn't stay?

    I saw you walk the wire
    I watched you burn away

    Somehow it moved me
    Your love has powers over me
    Oh what dream is this?
    Somehow it towers over me

    Send your love to move me
    My world has powered over me
    In perfect ruins
    Somehow it towers over me

    Who said we had it all?
    Our hearts no longer lie
    Who knew the veil would fall?
    Who'd guess that we would cry?

    What more were we to do?
    Two souls who had their fill
    Your love it keeps me here
    You keep me wondering still

    Somehow it moved me
    Your love has powers over me
    Oh what dream is this?
    Somehow it towers over me

    Send your love to move me
    My world has powered over me
    In perfect ruins
    Somehow it towers over me

    In perfect ruins
    Somehow it towers over me
    Hmm
    Hmm
