How many times will I have to go around
Before I realize that it’s a circle
Every mess I make and every foolish step I take
Brings me back until I’m undone

So much sadness in this madness
Without an anchor we wash away

Can we leave this place?
Can we leave this place tonight?
Can we hold our hearts and dream out loud
Against the night sky?
Baby hold on tight, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride
But I have faith that the light is coming up this time

How many days will you look into my face
And never see through the mask I’ve made
With every man I meet
There is a fraud that we must keep
Just to live out these days in peace

And I can’t take it, and I won’t make it
If this is the cold bed where we must sleep
It will be the death of me.

Gold, gold, gold on our horizon,
We will find the perfect light

Come and leave with me, leave everything behind
Let go your rags, dream out loud against the night sky
Baby hold on tight, its gonna be a bumpy ride
But I have faith that the light is coming up, coming up.
