lyrics

You and I are the candle or the flame
But either possibility it does no good for me
I'm like a camel under the sun
Like the prophet in the desert can't leave for anything or one
I'm the only sparrow on the wind
And the moment you lose focus I'm gone and never seen again
You're like a boxer in the ring
Keep your hands tied tightly so you won't have to handle me
I'm an old fisherman on the sea
I step foot on the sand and the waves drag me out again
And you, you’re like the last day of the fall
You usher in the winter while I fight it tooth and claw
Maybe I'll find a way
Maybe I'll find my way home
I am never at home (no matter where I am)
I am never at home (no matter what I do)
But I would turn my whole world over just to be with you
I would crawl through every desert just to be with you
I would follow every breeze just to be with you
I would swim past every wave just to be with you
