Hush now my dear,
We must get away from here,
I'm afraid if we don't we will die,

I know you've got what you need,
But needing isn't everything,
You must have desire to survive.

So love won't you take my hand,
I know you might not understand,
But you have to know that we must try!

Believe me,
I just want what best for us,
What you see is not always what you think
Fall to your knees
On crushed hopes and broken dreams,
Keep your chin above,
Or you will sink.

From consciousness,
Into a very deep sleep,
One from which you will never wake,

But I would be there for you,
Doing everything I could,
If only I could trade, I would.

So love won't you take my hand,
So we don't end up like that,
Turning back to sand from whence we came!
