lyrics

Take my hand and we'll fly
Or don't that's fine
And I think I see, this ain't about me
For all we are, is all we are
And all we do, is all we can do.

I think we're at a crossroads once again
Wish it was with someone other than my best friend
'Cause my head is telling me I have to go
But my heart is wishing that it ain't so
So you go left, I'll go right
and I'll catch you in The Next Life

We had a good run, you can't say it weren't fun
So why stop there. I know you're in there
Don't walk away, I still have more to say
You might not want to hear, or you do I fear.


I think we're at a crossroads once again
Wish it was with someone other than my best friend
'Cause my head is telling me I have to go
But my heart is wishing that it ain't so
So you go left, I'll go right
and I'll catch you in The Next Life

There's more to be than what we are, like a pair of uncrossed stars
I found you in the cold of space, I'll find you again in the exact same place
Because I can't let you, I won't let you, should I let you go?
If it takes an eon or an age to get to you, I ain't done turning the same page on you
So you go left and I'll go right and sure as day turns into night
I can't let you, I won't let you, I can't let you go
So you go left and I'll go right.
