lyrics

and after the storm subsided
the land was scarred but we were alright
we found peace in the shade
looking out over the ashes we made
the sign of the cross
then turned, hand in hand and smiled
into the future

i had everything i needed right there
between my fingers
and your eyes, they smiled back

we headed out into the land of promise
armed with a knowledge of who we are
we never knew where we were going
but when we get there we'll know we're there
and we'll stay as long as we need to
then find each other once more

cause we are only tourists now
since our home went up in flames
and i remember every day
the life that fire claimed
...and it plagues me
...and it haunts me

and there you are reminding me we got through it
though my hands are empty now you're still by my side
i look to the heavens
and curse them but i thank them
for a love that's been misplaced
but is there all the same

i had everything i needed right there
between my fingers
and your eyes smiled back still
you're the flame that warms my heart
and from time to time
you light it up and remind me
how lucky i am
