It's The Same In The End

Better Way - Ben Harper

 

Your eyes reflect the sunset

Your words seep into my bones

We step closer to the edge

And survey the waiting stone

 

Must it finish this way?

 

Are we really just two fools

Or is this decision wise?

Our love goes beyond this world

It can be seen without eyes

 

Must it finish this way?

Is there no other way?

 

I am proud to be your man;

With you I shall always stand

Listen not to the cynic,

He has no better plan

 

Must it finish this way?

Is there no other way?

 

The wind is biting and sharp

Your hair slices like a knife,

Like truths I wish not to know,

Like the lost hope of this life

 

Must it finish this way?

 

In pure silence we join hands

We step out and close our eyes,

Fall into a sweeter dream

Where our love can't be denied

 

Must it finish this way...

Yes, it is ending this way...

Yes, it has ended this way...

The End
