Lightning Bolts Colliding

My girl, I looked over the edge of the earth,
and I saw lightning bolts colliding,
and tears falling like rain,
and the women of Jerusalem, bent down,
picking up the shards of the promised land,
and I said to myself --

"We are headed there."
And, I suppose you saw that same vision,
and your heart secretly broke,
and then you tried to close your eyes,
and look back at me for some reassurance.

My eyes, however, were gazing at you,
and beyond you,
and I loved you too much to lie.
