Lyrics
baby, what you doin with these games you know I'm hearing those voices
they say run with your dreams and make good choices
and I know what I want to give
and I know what I want to get
but I've barely touched it yet

there's names, there's faces
so many different places
and I want to feel them all

and I need for your love to hold me
and I just pray it doesn'thold me down
and I need for you love to trust me
with both feet on the ground

but lovers won't blind the reason, blind the reason I breath
no lovers won't blind the reason, blind the reason I breath

as the years get shorter, the miles get longer..
oh, I know that I'm wiser, but am I stronger..

well I know what I want to do so baby can you see me through
or will I be torn in two
cause there's a life time of pages
I've held back for ages
and I want to see them all

and I need for your patience cause I can be such a child
and I need, for you graceful, warm approving smile

but lovers won't blind the reason, blind the reason I breath
no, lovers won't blind the reason, blind the reason I breath
