Across This Passage

I'm not afraid of the deep frozen winter
I'm not afraid of the desert's heat
I'd sail alone under tall white cliffs
on an unfriendly sea
if it would bring you back.
I'd put my hand in the flames
of a furnace
I would look in the face of the devil.
I'd push a stone 
up the side of a mountain
through a band of steel
if it would bring you back.
bring you back.
Eveyone's looking 
for something to hold
something to push back the long night
and they just go nowhere.
I am another
who is looking for shelter
and a bed by the firelight
and your arms around me
your arms around me..
Someday, I will hold you
when I get across this passage.
Someday, my love will unfold you
and I will cross this passage
for you.
For you.

I wandered lost 
in a land without comfort
on the broken road of a tortured dream
I took a ring
from the hand of an angel
who gave me the only thing
that would bring you back,
if it could bring you back...

Everyone's looking for
something to hold
something to push back the long night
and they just go nowhere.
I am another 
who is looking for shelter
and a bed by the firelight
and your arms around me,
your arms around me...

Someday, I will hold you
if I get across this passage
someday, my love will unfold you
and I will cross this passage for you.
All for you.
I will cross this passage for you
Oh,
oh oh.
