Without the root, you ain't got no tree
And without the branches, you ain't got no leaves
To understand her is to understand me
'Cause that's how close we are

Without a sea you ain't got no air
And it ain't no walkin' if you ain't got the legs
Understand I use her eyes to see
That's how close we are

Heart to heart, breath to breath
She fills me up 'til there ain't none left
No space, no time, her spirits my mind
You see, that's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are

Without the stars, there's no galaxy
And without the river, you don't have no sea
Just look at my life, and it's her you'll see
'Cause that's how close we are

And without a voice no one can hear you sing
And it ain't no flying without the wings
So if you see me flying it's her carrying me
That's how close we are

Heart to heart, breath to breath
She fills me up 'til there ain't none left
No space, no time, her spirits my mind
You see, that's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are

She talks with me
She walks with me
She's holding me
And yes, she's teaching me

Everything I can't do
Everything I can't say

She does for me
She prays with me
She cries with me
She's loving me

Nothing could compare to the love we share
So that woman and man
Who understands you can say

Heart to heart, breath to breath
She fills me up 'til there ain't none left
No space, no time, her spirits my mind
You see, that's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are

That's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are

That's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are
That's how close we are
