Lyrics

Slow like a bow on a string
Fast like a wildfire spreading
Light as air beneath a wing
But heavy with passion
I was your violin
You were my oxygen
And you gave me wings
And I made you fly, didn't I?

So can you just tell me, how was I so misled?
Or can you just tell me what was going through your head?

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide

Hot like a touch of sunlight
But cold like a sleepless night
Soft as a bird in flight
But it got real loud when we'd fight
I was your jack of spades
You were my slow play
But you hid the ace
And you hid the truth, didn't you?

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide

We were slow like a bow on a string
And we were fast like a wildfire spreading
And we were soft like a bird in flight
And I thought that we'd make it right
We'd make it right

Cause to me it was so obvious
You were standing on a bridge
And I was waving you across
But you wouldn't listen
And it's too late now
You'll stay on your side, me on mine
It's the great divide
