Whenever I run 
Whenever I run to you lost one 
It's never done 
Just hanging on 

Just past has let me be 
Returning as if dream 
Shattered as belief 

If you have to go don't say goodbye 
If you have to go don't you cry 
If you have to go I will get by 
Someday I'll follow you and see you on the other side 

But for the grace of love 
I'd will the meaning of 
Heaven from above 

Your picture out of time 
Left aching in my mind 
Shadows kept alive 

If you have to go don't say goodbye 
If you have to go don't you cry 
If you have to go I will get by 
I will follow you and see you on the other side 

But for the grace of love 
I'd will the meaning of 
Heaven from above 

Long horses we are born 
Creatures more than torn 
Mourning our way home
