All it will take is just one moment and
You can say goodbye to how we had it planned 
Fear like a habit run like a rabbit out and away
 Through the screen door to the unknown 

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
 Where do you reside, when you hide?
How can I find ya?
'Cause I want to send you and more
I want to tempt you and more
Can you tell that I
Am alive let me prove it.

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

Live like a pharaoh 
Sing like a sparrow anyway
Even if there is no land or love in sight 
We bloom like roses, lead like Moses, out and away
 Through the bitter crowd to the daylight 

And I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
Can you tell that I
Am alive let me prove it to ya.

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain 
But you and, I we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I, we're the same

I want to love you and more
I want to find you and more
 Where do you reside 
When you hide how can I find ya
'Cause I wanna save you and more
I wanna tempt you and more
Can you tell that I am alive, let me prove it

You and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You rejoice, I complain 
But you and I, we're the same
Live and die, we're the same
You and I, we're the same
Hear my voice, know my name
You and I
You and I
