Just give me a second

a moment of time

so that I can hear your voice


I'll stare at the ground

pretend it's not there

and drown out all the noise


We can hold each other

against the cold

keeping away the snow


How many times

I have wondered why

it was this love that had grown


Out of wreckage and ruin

I rose from the rubble

and found you there waiting for me


And the first thing we did

was lock arms together

to wade knee deep in the sea
