Lyrics

From the cliffs of the rocky west I cry to the stones below.
I cry to the raging sea Let my lover go.
My love is stronger still, than all your empty miles.
Softer than your sweet caress, stronger than all your trials.
And I will never believe all the lies you tell
You cannot hold forever the lover I know so well
I will not give you body in the pale light of dawn
I will deny you your hunger before my last breath is drawn

Chorus

And though I understand you completely
And though my back is pressed to the wall
You have not the power to defeat me
And you will never silence my call


I held my lovers heart so fragile and true
Would you do the same, if it was asked of you
But still you furnish no answer, reveal none of your designs
Would you walk through the fire if it was your time
And I will never let go of the things I know to be true
And in my moments of indecision I will draw close to you
Sometimes I know your face, like a confidant when love grows cold
But I can never give my trust I only know what I've been told
