it's a long way home & i've had my fill
i will fight my way down magnetic hill
& i'll feel it pull on my iron will
& the broken heart that is broken still

all the days between then & now
had to pass somehow
& when you squeeze my hand tears come out

take two hearts & draw a line
what's mine is yours & yours is mine
if you share a space then you will collide
with the only truth you used to hide


the crying shame that i can't name
besides our fame,
is that i can't feel the same
the moon is just a stone
& the light that we all blame
you'll never face alone.

if you share a space then you will collide
& these hearts are home & these hands are tied...
