Watching from a Distance tracks

Lyrics


1. Watching From A Distance

Sometimes when I watch you, you seem like the same person that I once knew
I watch from a distance, but never able to do more then I ever would.
Looking at you, I find again I am starving in your mystery,
so for away and some kind of helplessness.
And then I remember that I know you love me, I know you do.
sometimes when I listen to your fearless voice, it's the voice I once heard
I want to know you and understand you more then I think I do
to keep the wonder, the moment you seem like a stranger to my heart and me.
and all at once, in an instant I see you perfected again
though you never changed, please remember when you ever think of me.




2. Footprints

I am not feeling the green burning flame as I gaze back along footprints you have made.
I am not dreaming of more then you have shown. You're not a foundation, you are not a stone
But I'm afraid of the way that I'm feeling. Afraid of this new understanding now.
Afraid for the beauty within me and that which I hold within my hand.
And this is the ultimate secret that many before me have ever known.
So capture me while I am weakest, I want to know, I want to know.
Here I am wide open, surrendering to your signs. I have laid down my armour,
I have no sword at my side. I live behind the ruins of the fortress I've sworn to defend,
I live behind the foundations I'll leave you to mend.
And through all the battles around me I never believed I would fight.
Yet here I stand, the broke soldier, shivering, naked in your winter light.




3. Bridges

In the darkness I have revelled, no truce I have suffered for so long to embrace.
They will change me from hereon. But I can't share it with anyone.
I wish you were with me tonight.
when I am not alone, I suffer silent moment,
building bridges with meaningless words and only feel the distance further.
Remember be happy in our silence. I wish that you were with me tonight.
I don't need a reason there's nothing to explain. I can't reproach your leaving to justify my pain.
But can I really understand. I wish you were with me tonight.
I read over all you wrote me. The words mean so much more these days. They echo in my soul.
They sting me like a bug. Can someone feel to much? I wish you were here with me tonight.




4. Faces

I want to be master of my own emotions with the fire that fills me,
but I don't understand myself and I don't know, I don't know what my heart is anymore.
I don't want to be standing in this water through pity and responsibility.
So come in to my life with your violence and pain,
cause I feel the depths of a love I never know. Take a hold of my life,
make it into one that I want it to be. Make a whole of my life, make my faces one that I want you to see.
I can't stand to see confusion in your eyes, when I drift away sometimes,
could I ever be more faithless in my life ?
For all the hope I found in these days,
It's always frightened me how some things loose their meaning,
how something changed direction with a breeze. Don't ask me where I am,
I'm trying to come home, but I can't keep myself from drifting.
Take a hold of my life, make it into one that I want it to be.
Make a whole of my life, make my faces one that I want you to see.
Sometimes it makes me feel feelings which I never hoped to find.
Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm living out on time.
Sometimes it makes me feel feelings which I never hoped to find.
Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm living out of time




5. Echoes

I think of mornings we might spend if I came home to find you there.
Both talking freely of ourselves, or sleeping through the break of day.
And so much honesty, that's why I never feel the pain.
And in my weakest moments I often look that way again
I think of evenings we might spend if you stayed home to find me there
reaching across a distance with all the hurt that's in our lives.
And if it came to be I would not understand the pain
And in my darkest moments, I want to feel that way again
And I know that I'm wrong, I know that I'm wrong, but casting shadows
there's a light that shines on. But when I look into your eyes, I know I'll find it there.
So I don't understand the pain I thought was never there.
And when I see you smile, I know there's something stronger yet then any dream I ever placed at someone's feet.
