Elsewhere

I love the time
and in between
the calm inside me
in the space
where I can can breath
I believe there is a distance
I have wandered to touch
upon the years of
reaching out and reaching in
holding out and holding in

I believe this is heaven to
no one else but me
and I'll defend it
long as I can be
left here to linger in silence
if I choose to
would you try to understand

is passing time
passing through like liquid
I am drunk in my desire...

but I love the way
you smile at me
I love the way your hands
reach out to hold me near...

no one else but me
and I'll defend

as I can be
left here to linger in silence
if I choose to
would you try to understand

oh the quiet child
awaits the day
when she can break free
the mold that clings
like desperation

mother can't you see
I've got to
live my life
the way I feel is
right for me
might not be
right for you
but it's right for me

I believe
this is heaven
to no one else but me
and I'll defend
it as long as I can be
left here to linger in silence
if I choose to
would you try to understand it
I would like to linger
here in silence
if I choose to

would you try to understand
would you try
