The Shins – The Great Divide Lyrics

The Great Divide Lyrics By The Shins

Your starlit eyes
The afterglow a sign
You’ve set us wandering
So let me ride through night
Til love is everything
Now an age has come out of the loneliness
Your hand in mine
Your hand in mine
The great divide
A stitch in time
Then we recombine
The way it was
Well dust to dust
Has led us here to collide

The blind collective mind of man is all they’re offering
Then you bring a breath of life out of the emptiness
Your hand in mine

Your hand in mine
The great divide
A stitch in time
Then we recombine
The way it was
well dust to dust
Has led us here to collide
Oh love of mine
Bright as the starlight shines
Into the night
Changing our whole lives

You trace the lines through space and time
Until you find they all align
You give to me
A memory
Just a melody
I have to sing
