lyrics

This unbearable heat,
It’s been there many years.
The water has run dry
And I got no more tears.

But your smile was like a shower
On a dry and dusty land.
It washed away the traces
Of my sorrows in the sand.

And your voice was like the wind,
Gentle on my skin.
In your eyes I saw the fires
Of the storms you keep within.

I would stand out in your rain
'Cos I’ve felt your touch that burns.
But these roads remain untravelled
And these lessons left unlearned.

But I know you’ll never write
And I know you’ll never call.
There’s a broken old continent between us,
There’s a sea, there’s a world.

And I suppose that’s as it should be,
We are simply too far apart.
You’ll never understand the sorrow of this land,
And the hole that it’s made in my heart.
No, you’ll never understand the sorrow of this land,
And the hole that it’s made in my heart.
