  • Well I hope, when you can't hear what I am thinking, you know I can't always talk
    But I'm always listening in an absence, where you hate to feel uncared for
    Pretending there's nothing that you're not prepared for
    Who are you lapping when you're running from
    Surrender if life is a fatal race for all contenders?
    To find the peace within the combat where we're standing
    We have to make our history less commanding

    Well, our mercy is a boundary we'll surrender
    When love is a safer place we both remember
    Like an old estate that stands in no location
    At the edge of an age of endless renovation
    And while all that noise competes for our attention
    We'll meet on a quiet field in our own dimension

    We'll step inside a world far less demanding
    When we allow for something less commanding Writer/s: DARBY CICCI, MICHAEL LERNER, PETER SILBERMAN
