lyrics

That old cliché about people parted
That the home is where the heart is
And their triteness makes them no less true
All my soul is there with you

In endless travels across dark lands
I always trusted you'd understand
Of all these places I make my stands
That my home is in your hands

What we make of the time we have here
And what I take from you I hold dear
In between what they say and what they mean
I hear your voice and I have my peace

We are the sums of all we've seen
All we've broken all we've healed
All we told and all we concealed
Beneath our veneers we are revealed

All we're after all we've caught
All we wanted all we bought
All we're given all we've lost
All we live for is in my heart

What we make of the time we have here
And what I take from you I hold dear
In between what they say and what they mean
I hear your voice and I have my peace
