I can hear you sleeping
Like a softly penned letter that you plan on keeping
SOund asleep
Next ot me
Under the ink of a drying sky

I fi were a wordsmith
A creative license to puncture my journals with I would i write

Of the sight
Under my green poetic eyes

But I'm a yearling
A callow schoolboy
In the eye of love
A palid virgin
Just a newborn
Barely breathing
In the eyes of love
I'm a yearling

As I shed this pathos
A smothering poem breathes in a breath of prose
Beathe you in
And again
The dizzying features of love rush by

But I'm a yearling
A callow schoolboy
In the eye of love
A palid virgin
Just a newborn
Barely breathing
In the eyes of love
I'm a yearling

Torn from the books of blank verse
Born from these pages I've nursed
Awakened by the sleeping eyes of loved

    General CommentWhat a gorgeous song! I can't believe there aren't a million comments!!! Re the meaning, it sounds to me like it's about The First Time. The lyrics are beautiful. I just got introduced to Jump Little Children and I kinda wish I had sooner. They're awesome.

    General CommentGreat song. It has this amazing soothing quality. The melody of it, the way it's sung - it calms me down whether I'm feeling sad or angry, or just restless.
    I agree on the meaning of the song - it's sounds like he's new to this whole "love" thing. I can totally relate to that - I'm wondering if it will ever happen to me.
