There you are  as you always were 
In bathing light and naked blue 
You're a part of me  eternal one 
By grand design and setting sun 

If you wait  I will wait 
Taste  I will taste 
If you love  I will love 
Run  I will run 
To my last breath 

Last night I turned around and thought I saw myself turning 
Inside the strangest dream of life  unloved and cities burning 


Awake in my arms you cry unshamed 
Our age of the hours while they still devour all 
So take it all, I doubt if we will know it's gone 
'Cause we've been here since time began 

Begged God awake and make these plans 
Wound opens, reveal this broken man 
And soon there's notions of blood on his hands 

If you wait, I will wait 
Taste, I will taste 
If you love, I will love 
Run, I will run 
To my last breath 

Last night I turned around and thought I saw myself turning 
Last night I turned around and thought I watched the world ending 
Inside the crushing down I felt a pang, the tide was turning 

Destroyed in the wake 
The jealous ingrates 
Who'll tear this world down 
To spite God above 
With his own love 
With his own love 

If you wait, if you wait 
If you wait, I will wait 
Taste, I will taste 
If you love, I will love 
Run, I will run 
To my last breath
