(Handed down and made by hand)

Each time you pull down the driveway
Wasn't sure when I would see you again?
Yours was a twisted blind sided highway
No matter which road you took then

Oh, you set up your place in my thoughts
Moved in and made my thinking crowded
Now we're out in the back with the barking dogs
My heart the red sun, your heart the moon clouded

I could go crazy on a night like tonight
Summer's beginning to give up her fight
And every thought's a possibility
And the voices are heard but nothing is seen
Why do you spend this time with me
Maybe an equal mystery?

So what is love then? Is it dictated or chosen?
(Handed down and made by hand)
Does it sing like the hymns of a thousand years
Or is it just pop emotion?
(Handed down and made by hand)

And if it ever was there and it left
Does it mean it was never true?
And to exist it must elude
(And to exist)
Is that why I think these things of you

I could go crazy on a night like tonight
(A night like tonight)
Summer's beginning to give up her fight
(Yoh, yoh, yoh)
Every thought's a possibility
And the voices are heard but nothing is seen
Why do you spend this time with me
Maybe an equal mystery?

But you like the taste of danger
It shines like sugar on your lips
You like to stand in the line of fire
(Stand in fire)
Just to show you can shoot straight from your hip

There must be a thousand things you would die for
I can hardly think of two
But not everything is better spoken aloud
Not when I'm talkin' to you

Oh, the pirate gets the ship and the girl tonight
Breaks a bottle to christen her
(Huh, huh, huh, huh, huh)
Basking in the exploits of her thief
She's a very good listener

Maybe that's all that we need
Is to meet in the middle of impossibility
We're standing at opposite poles
Equal partners in a mystery
(Handed down and made by hand)
We're standing at opposite poles
Equal partners in a mystery
