Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Climb a cross
A sea-filled cross
Climb above
The still water

Desperate to
Seek to way
Earn your chance
With golden harvest

Find my hand pressing in
Meant no feeling in
Just the distance calling
It's distance calling
It's distance calling

There is no wanting
There's no way across
There is no wanting and can't go on
In a world you'd understand
This is your moment
In a world of being
Shoulda been dead, left for dead
This distance calling
This distance calling
This distance calling
