You breathed infinity into my world
And time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night
Then you said, "Wait for me, we'll fly the wind
We'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him"
But oh, now my world is at your feet, I was lost and I was found
But I was alive and now I've drowned
So now, I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
So they can tell me, "I was wrong"

But they weren't there beneath your stare
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
Or any bindings from the world outside that room
And they weren't taken by the hand
And led through fields of naked land
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away
So I couldn't say "No"

You sighed and I was lost in you
Weeks could've past for all I knew
You were the blanket of the over-world
And so I couldn't say, I wouldn't say "No"
And they all say, "You're too young to even know
Just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him"
But oh, now my world is at your feet, I was lost and I was found
But I was alive and now I've drowned
So now, I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
So they can tell me, "I was wrong"

But they weren't there beneath your stare
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
Of any bindings from the world outside that room
And they weren't taken by the hand
And led through fields of naked land
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away

But they weren't there beneath your stare
And they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
Of any bindings from the world outside that room
And they weren't taken by the hand
And led through fields of naked land
Where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away
So I couldn't say "No"
