lyrics

To See if Love Can Fly:

been so afraid of diving in
to deeper places never known
this mask we painted, it's not our face
it's only what we hide behind

just bring it into the light
to where the stars can shine
just lay it under the sun
where it can be seen

to see if love can fly
we'll throw it over the side
of this cliff
and if it doesn't die
we'll know the reason why
is love

Is there anything left
for us to do
I've seen your demons,
and I know your fruit
blind and holding onto
things unseen
will we fall down
will we fall down
you've been behind the walls of my heart
and bled your colors into mine
I've seen your darkness
and you see me
through a veil
through a veil.

To see if love can fly
we'll throw it over the side of this cliff
and if it doesn't die
we'll know the reason why
is love

Straight through day is night again
on through day, the night again
straight through day into night again
on through night into day, to day

day so long like night, like night
night so long like day like day
days so long like night, like night
night so long, the day, the day

can you feel my heartbeat
it echoes from your chest
you are half my heartbeat
it echoes from your chest

you are just that part of me
that part of me that I can't love
