We Free

When I close my eyes
all your love is still so strong inside me
but I know there’s no release.
If I was by you now
maybe huddled near the windy water
we could watch the sunrise coloring the sea.

I miss you so much
but I’m trying to feel high somewhere in my soul.
‘Cause if our hearts believe in you and believe in me
we’re gonna feel it on our own.

If I close my eyes
listen closely I can hear me breathing,
in quiet times it sounds like ocean breezes.
When my thoughts are strong
I can come to feel the spirit in me
for a while I can really feel free.

And though time is master and I end up empty beyond control
I know if our hearts believe in you and believe in me
we’re gonna feel it on our own.

When I close my eyes
all your love is still so strong inside me
but I know there’s no release.
Walking by the sea
red skies in the morning twilight
thinking of the pretty dance you’ve spun for me.

But even if we were together
time has a way of killing love that’s not free to grow.
But I know if our hearts believe in you and believe in me
We’re gonna feel it on our own.
