Lyrics[edit]

    I lie, I wait
    I stop, I hesitate
    I am, I breathe
    I meant, I think of me
    
    Is it any wonder I can't sleep?
    All I have is all you gave to me
    Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
    Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
    Turn away from light
    It's not enough, just a touch
    It's not enough
    
    I taste, I love
    I come, I bleed enough
    I hate, I'm not
    I was, I want too much
    
    Is it any wonder I can't sleep?
    All I have is all you gave to me
    Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
    Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
    Turn away from light
    
    It's not enough, just a touch
