lyrics

God I'm dying to find the quiet in the dark
Like a blind man finds his way through hearing and touch
Now I've got more secrets than my mouth can hold
I'm naked so often I can't feel the cold
Who'll be that brave to fight me and
Love me just the same, love me just the same
It's about time that we redefined the
words that have lost the meaning of what we meant
In the name of love
In the name of your sweet creation
One day I'll understand, when the rags I wear fall away
With your hands reaching out, and your tears still wet running down them
Touch my lips with a coal, and drown me in your deepest fountain
Is there still time, for all my bridges to be rebuilt
My over-extended arms to mystically be filled
And I am so tired of running these distances to find
I haven't moved a mile, I'm a woman who longing to
Trust like a child again, trust like a child again,
It's about time that we redefined the words that have
lost the meaning of what we meant

In the name of love
In the name of your sweet creation
One day I'll understand, when the rags I wear fall away
With your hands reaching out, and your tears still wet running down them
Touch my lips with a coal, and drown me in your deepest fountain
