lyrics

How long will this go on
Til the rising day when I turn away
How long will this go on
Will I make it through, make it through with you

How wide is your love
Is it wider than a desert sun
How strong is your love
Is it quick to leave or will it rescue me

You don’t have to answer
You don’t have to say
You don’t even have to answer
When you look at me that way

Why call if you won’t come
To my open door, just won’t ask no more
Why call if you won’t come
When I need you most, when I need you most

You don’t have to answer
You don’t have to say
You don’t even have to answer
When you keep yourself away

How long can this go on
Will the rising day help me turn away
How long can this go on
Hope I make it through, hope I make it through

You don’t have to answer
You don’t have to say
You don’t even have to answer
When you look at me that way
