In land that’s claimed, in air that’s inhaled, you caress him.
In fire that burns, in water that calms, you feel what he does.
In the forbidden lands and beyond, is where you search.
And like the depths of the seven seas, you try to weigh his worth.
Your search for solace would never end
In the man lying next to you? No, you look for him everywhere.
Do look within yourself, he’s there.
