Hold my tears when I can't cry
Catch my heart when I can't fly
Pin me down so that I can do no more harm
Don't leave now, just be there with your arms

Hold my hand when I can't see
When I don't understand help me feel
When I can't walk soothe my soul
The words won't talk but your arms say it all

Hold my pain when I can't move
Say my name so I've nothing to prove
All I do is as nothing to you
Safe and calm in your arms

Hold me close when I can't breathe
Hold me tight so that I still believe
Take your place so that I have nothing to fear
Every day brings me nearer

Hold my face, make it shine
A gentle touch, make it mine
Love won't stay if you keep on walking away
Every day brings me nearer, still nearer
Nearer, still nearer
Nearer, still nearer


from The Moving Cloud, released January 7, 2001
