  • All it'll take is just one moment and
    You can say goodbye to how we had it planned
    Fear like a habit, run like a rabbit, out and away
    Through the screen door to the unknown

    And I want to love you and more
    I want to find you and more
    Where do you reside when you hide?
    How can I find ya?

    'Cause I want to send you and more
    I want to tempt you and more
    Can you tell that I am alive?
    Let me prove it

    You and I, we're the same
    Live and die, we're the same
    Hear my voice, know my name
    You and I, we're the same

    Live like a pharaoh
    Sing like a sparrow anyway
    Even if there is no land or love in sight
    We bloom like roses, lead like Moses, out and away
    Through the bitter crowd to the daylight

    And I want to love you and more
    I want to find you and more
    Can you tell that I am alive?
    Let me prove it to ya

    You and I, we're the same
    Live and die, we're the same
    You rejoice, I complain
    But you and I, we're the same
    Live and die, we're the same
    You and I, we're the same
    Hear my voice, know my name
    You and I, we're the same

    I want to love you and more
    I want to find you and more
    Where do you reside when you hide?
    How can I find ya?

    'Cause I wanna save you and more
    I wanna tempt you and more
    Can you tell that I am alive?
    Let me prove it

    You and I, we're the same
    Live and die, we're the same
    You rejoice, I complain
    But you and I, we're the same
    Live and die, we're the same
    You and I, we're the same
    Hear my voice, know my name
    You and I
