If you sit and stare on the steps facing the cathedral No one will think you're strange After all the years of painters and pilgrims calling You wouldn't seem out of place Oh remember, it will take time It'll take time If you walk alone in the streets where the tourists gather No one will think to ask why You'll be just a face in a world with so many others That you will find you can hide Oh remember, it will take time It'll take time If you never read the postcard she sent you No one will think that it's wrong Words that don't mean much when said by the living Mean so much more from those who've gone Oh remember, it will take time It'll take time Oh remember, it will take time It'll take time

It's almost midnight in the city where you live So far away from my arms I should say goodnight and let you get some sleep Your tomorrow comes sooner than mine But oh in these few precious moments We are closer than bodies can be And oh when you tell me of your dreams You plant them like seeds in my heart The stars are so bright in the city where you live Over here they're still shadowed by blue At a distance so wide that constellations change I am praying you'll navigate true But oh in these few precious moments I am sure of the places you'll be And oh when you tell me of your dreams They flower and leaf in my heart It's almost midnight in the city where you live So far away from my arms I should say goodnight and let you get some sleep Your tomorrow comes sooner than mine But oh in these few precious moments We are closer than bodies can be And oh when you tell me of your dreams You plant them like seeds in my heart

All of the love songs I know Start off with strangers alone staring into the dark Waiting around for a hint of a spark to hang their hats on And it happens that All of these poor lonely souls Find out before it's all over that there's someone there Hoping as they do that someone will care for them forever But I don't need love songs when I have you Darling it may be hard to believe but it's true Hearts can hold so many more than just two And I may belong to somebody new Then again so do you Doesn't mean that we're through Doesn't mean that I'll ever stop loving you All of the love songs I know End with an overblown show of the progress they've made All of the hands held and kisses exchanged The vows and babies And I feel weird that We'll never have such a thing There's not a song I can sing where the characters part Still holding on the other one's heart Agreed to be leaving But I don't need love songs when I have you Darling it may be hard to believe but it's true Hearts can hold so many more than just two And I may belong to somebody new Then again so do you Doesn't mean that we're through Doesn't mean that I'll ever stop loving you Doesn't mean that I'll ever stop loving you
