lyrics

I've been burdened, I've been plagued,
wondering if I have made a mistake
in working so hard to build an empire so far away.
And every time you go,
I'm reminded of the old golden days.

I believe the day will come
when you and I will walk as one
without the overwhelming bane of the miles in between.
I believe in richer air,
that I have the strength to get us there,
to that place and time
where you and I find what we're meant to see.

It's hard to remember
such a complex dilemma in our past,
wondering if what we feel
is just us trying to heal, will it last?
And every time I leave,
find myself just wondering when I will come home.

I believe the day will come
when you and I will walk as one
without the overwhelming bane of the miles in between.
I believe in richer air,
that I have the strength to get us there,
to that place and time
where you and I find what we're meant to see.

This life is whatever we want it to be,
just you and me.

I believe the day will come
when you and I will walk as one
without the overwhelming bane of the miles in between.
I believe in richer air,
that I have the strength to get us there,
to that place and time
where you and I find what we're meant to see.
