Lyrics


Many times I've tried to tell you

Many times I've cried alone

Always I'm surprised how well you

Cut my feelings to the bone


Don't wanna leave you really

I've invested too much time

To give you up that easy

To the doubts that complicate your mind


We belong to the light

We belong to the thunder

We belong to the sound of the words

We've both fallen under


Whatever we deny or embrace

For worse or for better

We belong, we belong

We belong together


Maybe it's a sign of weakness

When I don't know what to say

Maybe I just wouldn't know

What to do with my strength anyway


Have we become a habit?

Do we distort the facts?

Now, there's no looking forward

Now, there's no turning back

When you say


We belong to the light

We belong to the thunder

We belong to the sound of the words

We've both fallen under


Whatever we deny or embrace

For worse or for better

We belong, we belong

We belong together


Close your eyes and try to sleep now

Close your eyes and try to dream

Clear your mind and do your best

To try and wash the palette clean


We can't begin to know it

How much we really care

I hear your voice inside me

I see your face everywhere

Still you say


We belong to the light

We belong to the thunder

We belong to the sound of the words

We've both fallen under


Whatever we deny or embrace

For worse or for better

We belong, we belong

We belong together


We belong to the light

We belong to the thunder

We belong to the sound of the words

We've both fallen under


Whatever we deny or embrace

For worse or for better

We belong, we belong

We belong together


We belong to the light

We belong to the thunder
