lyrics

We're made from different stuff, and sometimes that's tough,
but you're finding out my hidden places
Seems like it takes so long, but that makes us strong,
Discovering your subtle graces
You ask if you look good with your hair down
By now you know that that's not why I stick around

You reach out across the canyon
Each time the gap's a little less wide
You reach out across the canyon
That's the reason why

We look for most our lives for husbands and wives
But they never know us when they meet us
We seek the life sublime but that takes some time
They take a while to complete us
You ask if you look pretty in that gown
But we both know that that's not why I stick around.

You reach out across the canyon
Each time the gap's a little less wide
You reach out across the canyon
That's the reason why

So many pretty faces were such a waste
They fell away and slowly faded
You're made of different stuff and that's why this love
Has melted all that once was jaded
You ask me to compare the love we've found
You'll find my answer in the way I stick around

You reach out across the canyon
Each time the gap's a little less wide
You reach out across the canyon
You make it seem it's possible to fly
You reach out across the canyon
Each time the gap's a little less wide
That's the reason why
That's the reason why
