Now begins the task
I have dreaded the coming of for so long
I wait for the sun to remind
My body it needs resting

I must learn to live without you now
As I cannot learn to give only part somehow

Camping on the edge of your city I wait
Hoping someday you see beyond yourself
Shadows on the ceiling hard but not real
Like the bars that cage me within myself

I must learn to live without you now
As I cannot learn to give only part somehow

I must learn to live without you now
As I cannot learn to give only part somehow

All of these cages must and shall be set aside
They can only keep us from the knowing
Actors and stages now fall before the truth
And the love between us remains growing

I must learn to live without you now
As I cannot learn to give only part somehow
