"Stolen Moments" lyrics - DAN FOGELBERG

"Stolen Moments"

Every time we speak, our words betray intentions
Insincere inventions that never quite reach the heart
So we turn the other cheek and gather our defenses
Again rebuild the fences that just been keeping us apart
Waiting out the worst, we keep the best inside us
In hopes our hearts can hide us, in hopes our tears don't show
And you know we're not the first to try and breach the distance
And though we meet resistance the love between us grows

And in the time it takes us to look beyond the lies
We could be sailing through each other's eyes
And in those stolen moments when love is caught off guard
We see it never had to be this hard
