Lyrics

Only you
Can make the day begin
Only you, Only you
Wild like rain and wind
Make it real
Make it true
Only you
Can light the flame
I call your name again
Through the pain
We breathe together

Chorus:
The love we share
Will guide us
It’s always there
Inside us
Like all I do
I live for you
As one not two
And we breathe together

Only you
Can bring the dark to light
Only you, Only you
Wild like rain and wind
Make it real
Make it true
I walk with you
In all I do
And we breathe together

Chorus:

Breathe, Breathe .....

Breathe, Breathe ......
Breathe together
Can’t breathe without you!

Poster art for song 'Blood Of You' from album titled Long Road by The Seeds of Time on which there is shown a tremendous tsunami wave heading towards a person who is spreading his arms wide open to meet its coming

Lyrics

When the last wave comes
Will you know just what to do
Just how long have you got
Until the last wave comes
When the heart beats hard
And the blood of you
Is all that you are
Will this leave you standing
And wondering why ...
It’s so hard!
So hard ...

Chorus:
How long is time
And the length of life
How big the wave
That will move you
How short the love
That burns far to fast ... oh
Hold on before you are left behind
On yesterday’s wave

Trying to measure your life
But not knowing where you are
You know that you are
Wasting your time
Trying to measure out your life
Now so scared to death
Of colours in your head
Believe that you can believe
In being in God’s debt

Chorus:

And at the end of the day
When the time has come
To put away your dreaming
And your screaming
And never let it shadow
Your living

When the heart beats hard
And the blood of you is all
That you are
Will this leave you standing
And wondering why, why
It’s so hard, so hard!

Yeah X Infinity ....

Trying to measure your life
But not knowing where you are
You know that you are
Wasting your time
Trying to measure out your life
When the heart beats hard
And the blood of you is all
That you are
Will this leave you standing

14. And She Walks Thru' The Fair
