  GOING ALL THE WAY IS JUST THE START

Sometimes it's the night and the way it seems to cry
And whisper terrifying secrets in your ear
Sometimes it's the day and the sun has got no mercy
Lighting up and burning everything that's in its way
 

There are times I've gotta run
Times I've gotta hide
Things I've left undone
Things I cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
 

If I ever tell you the truth I'm scared you would leave me
Show me the proof that you would believe me
 

You think I fly like an angel without any tears
Higher and higher, above the world and all its fears
 

Everybody's ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the fears are never very far
 

And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always dream we'd be braver but we never are
Let's run away
Let's go so far....
 

There are secrets I never can tell
There are shadows of darkness and heaven
There are so many suburbs of hell
And their hours are 24/7
 

There are so many wounds you can't heal
So many nightmares are turning to real
So much of paradise lost
And you add up the cost
But there's nothing to be sorry for
Now we can feel so much more
Now we can be loving you
Nothing that we're scared to do
 

You see me smile and you swear that I could walk on air
You see me dancing, the moonlight glancing at my hair
 

You see me as powerfully strong
But the nightmare's never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the tears are never very far
The fears are never very far and
 

We always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always seem to be braver but we never are
Let's fly away
Let's go too far
 

Sometimes it's the flesh and the way it seems to yearn
For all the magic of a single perfect touch
Sometimes it's the soul and it's waiting for salvation
You'll know when you get it there can never be too much
 

There are times I've gotta run
Times I've gotta hide
Things I've left undone
Things I've cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
 

If I ever tell you the truth, would you ever believe me?
Show me the proof, I'm so scared that you'd leave me
 

You think I fly like an angel without any cares
Higher and higher as if I'm breathing sacred air
 

Everybody's ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the fears are never very far
The nightmare's never very far
 

And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always dream we'd be braver but we never are
Let's run away
Let's go too far
 

Say a prayer for those who crawl
Say a prayer for those who run
Say a prayer so all in all
There's a better life to come
 

Say a prayer for those alone
Say a prayer for those apart
All the golden boys and girls
The crusaders of the heart
 

Say a prayer for all the lost
Say a prayer for the unborn
Say a prayer for all the young
It takes a fire to keep them warm
 

Say a prayer for those obsessed
Say a prayer for those enslaved
Say a prayer to beat the drums
From the cradle to the grave
 

Say a prayer for all the saints
Say a prayer for all the sins
Let the dancing never end
Let the future now begin
 

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
To make us braver than we are
 

How far is too far baby?
Come on and take me, take me
We're crusaders of the heart
And going all the way is just a start
 

How far is too far?
How far is too far, baby?
Take me deep inside your heart
And going all the way is just a start
 

How far is too far baby?
Come on and take me, take me
We're crusaders of the heart
And going all the way is just a start
 

Say a prayer
Say a prayer
Going all the way is just a start
Make us braver than we are
 

There's no such thing as too far
I've got to be where you are
Going all the way is just a start
The crusaders of the heart
 

How far is too far?
I've got to be where you are
Going all the way is just a start
Make us braver than we are
 

How far is too far baby?
Come on and take me, take me
We're crusaders of the heart
And going all the way is just a start
