♫♪♫ WORLD'S APART - Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ♪♫♪


I hold you in my arms, yeah that's when it starts

I seek faith in your kiss and comfort in your heart

I taste the seed upon your lips, lay my tongue upon your scars

But when I look into your eyes we stand worlds apart


Where the distant oceans sing and rise to the plain

In this dry and troubled country your beauty remains

Down from the mountain road where the highway rolls to dark

'Neath Allah's blessed rain we remain worlds apart


Sometimes the truth just ain't enough

Or is it too much in times like this

Let's throw the truth away we'll find it in this kiss

In your skin upon my skin in the beating of our hearts

May the living let us in before the dead tear us apart


We'll let blood build a bridge over mountains draped in stars

I'll meet you on the ridge between these worlds apart

We've got this moment now to live then it's all just dust and dark

Let's let love give what it gives

Let's let love give what it gives
