Elsewhere

Album: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (1993)
  • I love the time and in between
    The calm inside me
    In the space where I can breathe
    I believe there is a distance I have wandered
    To touch upon the years of
    Reaching out and reaching in
    Holding out, holding in
    I believe
    This is heaven to no one else but me
    And I'll defend it as long as I can be
    Left here to linger in silence
    If I choose to
    Would you try to understand?

    I know this love is passing time
    Passing through like liquid
    I am drunk in my desire
    But I love the way you smile at me
    I love the way your hands reach out and hold me near
    I believe
    I, I believe

    This is heaven to no one else but me
    And I'll defend it as long as
    I can be left here to linger in silence
    If I choose to
    Would you try to understand?

    Oh the quiet child awaits the day when she can break free
    The mold that clings like desperation
    Mother, can't you see I've got to live my life the way I feel is right for me
    Might not be right for you but it's right for me
    I, I believe
    This is heaven to no one else but me
    And I'll defend it as long as
    I can be left here to linger in silence
    If I choose to
    Would you try to understand it?
    I would like to linger here in silence
    If I choose to
    Would you understand it?
    Would you try to?
    Would you try to understand? Writer/s: Sarah Ann McLachlan
