Just speak your mind
We’re running out of time
Running out of time
To try to find
A way to say goodbye
Say goodbye

We’ll never get it right
The perfect turn of phrase
If we wait for poetry
We’ll be too late
We’ll be too late

To say everything I need to say
It would take eternity
Just to scratch the surface
Just to write an introduction
Just to begin to paint the picture that is our masterpiece
Made perfect by our imperfections
And faultless within our faults
A symphony so complex that I can barely understand
Why you stayed after the orchestra tuned to A above middle C
Why you stayed with me

(Far to the west, chasing the sun
The end is the beginning
As we leave our house for home)

You are my port in the storm
You are the light in my darkness
You bore into existence three expressions of love
Without whom we are incomplete
And through each one we will live forever
A legacy that shouts loudly from the rooftop
The broken shall inherit the earth
The broken shall inherit the earth
The broken shall inherit the earth
And she will be made whole
And she will be made whole

(Far to the west, chasing the sun
The end is the beginning
As we leave our house for home)

And even though I have so little to give
in comparison to what you deserve
And what little I have could never be enough
I give it alI
I give it all
Without condition
Without expectation
Without reserve
I give it all

(Leave our house for home)

I give it all to you
