We wrestle with our dreams into the night,
Our bodies never touching while we sleep.
Off in the distance everything shines bright
Beyond the barricades we've built so steep.
Forgotten lives we lived in days gone by
And missed emotions drifting far away.
Our seeking hearts are lost and gone awry,
So now we question all we think and say.
Meandering these loveless paths instead
Of traveling down nostalgic trails at dawn.
Forsaking grand emotions like we're dead,
And simple love effaced until it's gone.
Why may we not once more forgo vain pride,
Share passion's dreams across this vast divide.
