  • We're passengers in time lost in motion
    Locked together day and night by trick of light
    I must take another journey
    We must meet with other names
    Oo, we must meet with other names

    You touched my heart so deeply
    You rescued me, now free me
    Don't watch me cry, just see me go
    I'll take away the strongest feelings you will ever know
    There will be no more isolation in our secret separation
    You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
    Now free me

    We're passengers in time lost in motion
    Locked together day and night by trick of light
    I must take another journey
    We must meet with other names
    Oo, if only you and I be brave

    You touched my heart so deeply
    You rescued me, now free me
    Don't watch me cry, just see me go
    I'll take away the strongest feelings you will ever know
    There will be no more isolation in our secret separation
    You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
    Now free me

    We are matching spark and flame, caught in endless repetition
    Life for life, we'll be the same
    I must leave before you burn me
    I'm the stranger who deserts you, only to love you in another life

    There will be no more isolation in our secret separation
    You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me
    Now free me
    I'll bear one precious scar that only you will know again
    We're passengers in time, free me
    I'll bear one precious scar that only you will know again
    We're passengers in time, free me
    I'll bear one precious scar that only you will know again
    We're passengers in time, free me

  • Wearenotperfect from SomewhereinamericaMore of a constant battle between two individuals that can't be together but at the same time can't be apart. A sense that one individual knows that their relationship is not what it used to be and is only maintained because of the history they have made together and the other only wonders what it may have been like if they had taken a different path only to realize that their sharaid must continue to please their surroundings.
