Lyrics

His was the city, a rapid pace
pains in his chest and lines on his face
His hell and his heaven; the same damn place
Hers were the blue skies and open space
Living like pilgrims from outer space
Quoting the bible; no meals without grace

These two lives with so many miles between them
These two lives; like night and day
Two lives just waiting to find their own ways

His education was dark on the street
His dream was someday the odds would be beat
He’d climb from that hole to the top of the heap
They stifled her passion to travel the world
But they can keep her no longer a naive young girl
She’s out of her shell; a shining new pearl

These two lives with so many miles between them
These two lives are hot and they’re cold
Two lives just waiting to have and to hold

No one could figure just what they could see
When she looked in his eyes, she made him believe
Her words, his gospel; her prayers, his creed
They gave to each other lives never known
Somewhere in the middle they both found a home
Put two lives together from two lives alone

These two lives with so many miles between them
These two lives matured and they’ve grown
Now support two lives aside of their own
