LYRICS: Your pain - it is my pain Your joy - it is my joy Are we not tethered deeper than we claim? Are we not I before the name? Your fear - it is my fear Your loss - it is my loss Is not this loneliness a bridge across? Are we not I, not I, not I, not I...? Oh, bathe with me beneath the vale of tears and pray to He who still and silent hears and weeps that we may bathe in peace The floodgates are open The levee is broken The sea overflowing to spill on the choking sands unfolding like offering hands Love's light is roaring A violent morning explodes over dormant land unfolding like offering hands
