When you speak,
I feel the colour of my smile
Shifting like a crystal in an unexpected ray of
sunlight

When you listen,
It’s like trying to hold the ocean
Words gush through my fingers ‘til they’re crashing,
splashing
‘round your feet

If I could only sing my life with you
A different voice would come shimmering through
This fear would disappear then I could breathe.

Oh…
When I wrap my arms around you
Like a tender fortress you will love me gently
Safe at arms length

No…
It leaves me choking on desire
All this deeper music I must wrangle, strangle
Swallow in defeat

If I could only sing my life with you
A different voice would come shimmering through
This fear would disappear then I could breathe
If only I could breathe
