I like the quiet places, the silent places -
places inside my head.
Places where I can run and hide
in the moments when I feel afraid.
You placed your hand in my heart -
what were you thinking when love took hold?
It couldn't last forever, but you gave me hope;
You took away mortality and gave me
I am hungry for your love...
the nature of love's call and
I leave a candle burning in the window
to guide you safely home each night.
I clear a path for you to find your way,
and each night I keep watch and hold hope.
If I go one day without you,
Will I survive the hours
and the chiming of the clock?
If you leave me, and don't look back,
