The Thin Blue Line 

Walking along this thin blue line 
falling across the face of time 
flowing through this heart of mine 
following a trail towards the light 
unwinding inside this thin blue line 

the edge of the knife
the end of the sigh 
thread pulling you tight 
against me

Waltzing along this thin blue line 
trying to find that look in your eyes 
the window inside to the soul of silence
the way outside to the screaming sky 
somewhere along this thin blue line 

the edge of the knife
the end of the sigh 
thread pulling you tight 
against me 

Wanting a reason to be alive 
trying to find an alibi
hoping to soothe my jaded mind 
a distant voice from deep inside 
tells me to follow the thin blue line 

the edge of the knife 
the end of the sigh 
thread pulling you tight 
against me 

Waking in the ebb of night 
listening for the sounds of the sky 
the lonely wind, the heron's cry 
the quiet horizon  
just the other side of the thin blue line 

the edge of the knife 
the end of the sigh 
thread pulling you tight 
against me 

the edge of the knife 
the end of the sigh 
the invisible spectrum 
is just out of sight
