\/\/ide open doors
twice I am yours
once when you made me
twice when you paid for me

take one look at this Passion
all pales in comParison
I’m selling glass for diamonds
for silver and gold have I none

I breathe the dark
you breathe the stars
those words you spoke
and it was so

there’s a lot I do not know
and what I know it’s all good
yes, it’s all good, good. good, good,
good, good, very good
good, good, very good

yes, it’s all good, good. good, good,
good, good, very good
good, good, very good
and I said I am twice yours

wide open doors
twice I am yours
once when you made me
twice when you paid for me

I found the pearl of great price
he don’t want my sacrifice
I’m desperate for his riches
I’m desperate for replenishment

I breathe the dark
you breathe the stars
a thousand days
you save the world

there’s a lot I do not know
and what I know it’s all good
yes, it’s all good, good. good, good,
good, good, very good
good, good, very good

yes, it’s all good, good. good, good,
good, good, very good
good, good, very good
and he said you are twice mine
