Oh you and I found a quiet trail
Through the mossy woods, it’s a happy life
We don’t need a lot, just a TV show
An empty room, and a warm embrace

But when will we take the public life
Give up our lives, for the rising light
Might come real soon, or not at all
I await that call, hope you hear it too

I give my best to my closest friends
To co-workers, pay the dividends
Wanna do much more, and it starts to grow
A single flame is not much glow

But a rising tide, or a spreading smile
Infect the beach, like the falling snow
And I’ll give my best, all my words and thoughts
I will give these hands, I will work late nights

I hope for you that you take it too
That you see the light, that you hold it close
Then all my time, won’t have wasted it
If I can give one smile, to another life

And it’s hard to smile, I can see your pain
It’s been building up, but it’s not in vain
You will be so strong, oh I hope to God
You’re not wasting time, it’ll all work out
