I love the time and in between 
The calm inside me 
In the space where I can breathe 
I believe there is a distance I have wandered 
To touch upon the years of 
Reaching out and reaching in 
Holding out, holding in 
I believe 
This is heaven to no one else but me 
And I'll defend it as long as I can be 
Left here to linger in silence 
If I choose to 
Would you try to understand? 

I know this love is passing time 
Passing through like liquid 
I am drunk in my desire 
But I love the way you smile at me 
I love the way your hands reach out and hold me near 
I believe 
I, I believe 

This is heaven to no one else but me 
And I'll defend it as long as 
I can be left here to linger in silence 
If I choose to 
Would you try to understand?

Oh the quiet child awaits the day when she can break free 
The mold that clings like desperation 
Mother, can't you see I've got to live my life the way I feel is right for me 
Might not be right for you but it's right for me 
I, I believe 
This is heaven to no one else but me 
And I'll defend it as long as 
I can be left here to linger in silence 
If I choose to 
Would you try to understand it? 
I would like to linger here in silence 
If I choose to 
Would you understand it?
Would you try to?
Would you try to understand?
