lyrics

We ring out through the ages
Two dog-eared pages
From the oldest story ever told
Only the names and faces change
But the story remains the same
Two hearts that beat strong imprisoned in rib cages
Since you and I were there in the cave
When the thunder crashed when the lightening came
Unafraid
We were unafraid
And on the tip of your tongue was a sacred name
For the feeling in our bones that we could not yet explain
So we stayed near the flame
We clung to each other we banged on the drums and sang
It’s a cold world
Let’s stay together
Come a little closer
I’ll wear you like a sweater
Cause without you
There would be nothing
It’s a could world
Let’s stay together
Whenever you’re near me I feel a little better
Cause without you
There would be nothing

Bon voyage, my love
I heard you cry
As the planes flew above us
High
And as the fire fell from the sky
A single tear fell from your eyes
You leaned in close and whispered
Until next time
It’s a cold world
Let’s stay together
Come a little closer I’ll wear you like a sweater
Cause without you
There would be nothing
It’s a cold world
Let’s stay together
Whenever you’re near me I feel a little better
Cause without you
There would be nothing
It’s a cold world
