lyrics

It started with a wildflower to tickle her face
What if the skin of his fingers
had invaded the space?
Between a lonely girl who kept love at arm’s length
And an eager boy who thought he had the strength
To overcome her guards,
and climb the tower to her heart, to find …

Love, deeper than skin
To know her secrets deep within
To know how she feels from the outside in
To find love, deeper than skin

On a grassy knoll he made his move
But she stiffened her neck as if to prove
She had no need any man could fill
Well, he made up his mind at the top of that hill
That a kiss was a start,
but what he wanted was her heart, he wanted …

You came so close but so far away
I thought you’d let me inside one day
But around your heart is a wall of stone
I could never, never call it my own
So now it’s time to say goodbye,
to find someone who wants to be mine, to find ...
