"Yours" as written by and John C. Popper....
You, with your hand outstretched
Finger on the key
This lock that you release
Is opening but isn't free
And I hope that you can see
How it beats inside of me
I want to run I want to hide
I am vulnerably yours

She, who is wanting me
Whose touch can make me cry
I can only understand
By never asking her why
Hear the contradictions fly
And as hard as I may try
Every truth becomes a lie
In the ache of her reply
I am passionately

Yours
And the saddest eyes are
Yours
And the softest skin is
Yours
And the hope I borrow is
Yours
So won't you let me in I'm yours
All that I begin is yours
Every prize I win is yours
At your feet again I'm yours
All I am is yours

All I am is wanting you
I've fallen down and I can't seem to come to
If I should die before I wake
I commend my soul into this ache
Up above the world so high
Where the water tends to meet the sky
She's all I'm after by the toe
And I won't let go

And I wanted you to know
That if you reap what you would sew
I would take it blow by blow
All I am is

Yours
And the saddest eyes are
Yours
And the softest skin is
Yours
And the hope I borrow is
Yours
So won't you let me in I'm yours
All that I being is yours
Every prize I win is yours
At your feet again I'm yours
All I am is yours
Yours

    General CommentAlthough this is a great song (one of my favorites of BT), I happen to know JP wrote this song with a view to showing how easy it is to write a moving love song... Which still kicks me in the face a bit.. :(

    "All I am is wanting you, I have fallen down and can't seem to come too.." how many times have I felt like that? All I can say he must be a genius

    General CommentUmm..I dont know about JP just writing it to show how easy it is to write a moving love song but i found this.

    John: "I saw Immortal Beloved, the Beethoven story with Gary Oldman. I came home determined to write something passionate. And so that's what I did. It's about a young lady I know;
    I don't think I want to give her name."
    "She's also the inspiration of the first song ("Carolina Blues") which will tell you how things change..."

    General CommentAlmost too achingly slow, but picks up just in time and becomes achingly beautiful. Longing for his beloved. JP knows exactly how to hook you, draw you in, swell your heart to impossible sizes. He's the master.
