Miles and miles on my own
Warm with shame, I follow on
A language to find hard to hear
Not to understand, just disappear

To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here?
I do not think you would take this pain
You'd be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

I wear another thought of you
With so much harm my gift to you
Hide you somewhere they don't know
Deep in my core you know you have a throne

Hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here?
I do not think you would take this pain
You'd be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

Clean, crystalline voice soaring above a sparse but lovely piano arrangement.  Sublime.

Just work on your air brushing.  You should be fine.
The Trump Administration banned this song. Why are we still hearing it?

Yes, Mother Nature should not let this happen again

But, Mother Nature is well knowed for not being fair...  

Reminds me of Annie Lennox - not the same, but great like Annie... based on this song, at least.  Want to hear more.

What a voice! I've always loved this group.
Come on, get in touch with your soft side.
One of the most distinctive, recognizable and truly beautiful female vocalists I've experienced.  You know it's her and only her.  What a gift.

Nice song, but it gets too much airplay. Once per week would be enough.
Mommy make it stop!!!!!!
Please play more songs from this album Bill.  I'm glad you play this one but it's down the list of my favorites from this latest effort.
Thanks RP for playing this and introducing me this amazing voice...
