Lyrics Print lyrics

Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice

Him or her I shall follow

 

Who needs the sun

When the rain's so full of life

Who needs the sky

It's here in your arms

I want to be buried

You are

My sanctuary

 

Who needs the sun

When the rain's so full of life

Who needs the sky

When the ground's open wide

It's here in your arms

I want to be buried

You are

My sanctuary

 

Who needs a smile

When a tear's so full of love

Who needs a home

With the stars up above

It's here in your heart

I want to be carried

You are

My sanctuary

 

Who needs the light

With the darkness in your eyes

Who needs to sleep

With the stars in the sky

It's here in your soul

I want to be married

You are

My sanctuary

 

And the earth was void and empty

And darkness was upon the face of the earth

 

Is all of this pain so necessary

You

Are

My sanctuary

 

Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice

Him or her I shall follow

As the water follows the moon

Silently

(Who needs the sun)

With fluid steps

(Who needs the sky)

Around the globe

( Who needs to sleep)

I hear your voice

You are (you are)

My sanctuary

You are (you are)

You are (you are)

My sanctuary
