Horizon

I can turn my back to the horizon
If that's what needs to be done
But I know from time to time
I'll look over my shoulder
And wonder what we could have done
If you'd just come over the hillside
Smiling
With flowers to braid into my hair

It's nobody's fault, these circumstances
We find ourselves muddling through
And neither of us has the power to change it
We've just got our simple belongings
To carry with us
To share
To withold if we have to
Do we have to

It's not a matter of survival
Just desire, just desire

I'm scared, too, you know
I've got a heart that breaks
And I can't stop the pain of separation
But neither can I stop this blooming
It's happening
I'm here now
I'm blooming
Just turn your head and look at me
Just wipe your eyes and see me here before you

It's not a matter of survival
Just desire, just desire
And we'll cry more tomorrow
But just love me now

I can turn my back to the horizon
But I know from time to time
I'll look over my shoulder
