One comes of it, love it, love it
Let go of it, love comes from it
We're not of this world for long
Faith and promise keep me honest
When starvation falls upon us
Daylight told me here I'd be
Gone with cold words spoke among hers
Wretched in the tongue of their world
We're not of that world at all, we will never be
Wouldnt it be fine to stand
Behind the words we say
In the best of times
Oh, and you and I know all too well
About the hell and paradise
Right here on earth
Keep it, use it, build it, move it
Flames cant touch how time will prove it
Watch us fly as loud as we can
Let her heartbeat change what I am now
Wouldnt it be fine to stand
Behind the words we say
In the best of times
Oh, and you and I know all too well
About the hell and paradise
Right here on earth
