Tell me the truth, don't ask me to lie
These are the things we say
You don't need proof and, and I'm not going to try
But I think we have lost our way

I don't own the sun and I can't raise the moon
So now as the darkness falls
Love's a hard one and over too soon
Another cruel landing caused

What I can do is turn now to you
Holding my hand to my heart
All that I know is I'm watching us grow
Closer and closer apart

And now all the kings horses and all the kings men
Wait for their clarion call
Pride hears its voice and fear wins again
And there's nothing to break our fall

What I can do is turn now to you
Holding my hand to my heart
All that I know is I'm watching us grow
Closer and closer apart
Closer and closer apart

Over and over and over again
The world only spends one way
The past is a distant flicker by now
And a lesson for another day

Now my sad little boat floats on out to sea
And you're almost out of sight
I'll remember you, please don't forget me
I whisper with all my mind

All I can do is turn now to you
Holding my hand to my heart
All that I know is I'm watching us grow

All I can do is turn back to you
And wave with one hand on my heart
Of that I know this is so hard to go
