You're out there among the stars
It never will seem right
If I could get to where you are
I'd there be there tonight

Were you just a dream I had
How am I to know?
I can't hold you in my arms
And I can't let you go

Higher mountains
Deeper valleys
Longer rivers
Stand between us now
I could climb that jagged peak
I could cross that great divide
If I knew that you'd be waiting for me on the other side

The days pass my window now
Oh, but nights like these are rough
I can feel you in my heart
But that's not close enough

If I could hear you breathe again
The comfort of your sigh
I'd gladly trade tomorrow in
On one more last goodbye

Higher mountains
Deeper valleys
Longer rivers
Stand between us now

When I rise above the seas
(When you rise above the earth)
And the firmaments collide
(And the firmaments collide)
When I pass through Heaven's gateway
Let me enter as your bride
(Yes you will enter as my bride)
Bluebonnets in my hair
(That I'll gather for you there)
That you'll gather for me there

You're out there among the stars
