You're lovely to me yes you are
We've traveled together
We've traveled so far
Your tongue it is wise
And there's love in your eyes deep and blue

You're lovely to me yes you are
And venus ascending is surely your star
I've seen how you shine
But I can't make you mine it is true

You're a midsummer mountain in bloom
Heather and linden, the fruit of your womb
There's honey and sap in the couch of your lap
Lady day

There's nothing you would not provide
When all is despair you are there at my side
It is you that is near it is you that gives ear
when I pray

You're lovely to me yes you are
You've been out on the road with a craving for tar
You know what you need yes you're canny in deed
And in name

You're lovely to me yes you are
And I'll see you tonight in a local bar
We'll be wed before dawn and by morning
We're one and the same

The old ones they knew you my love
They set you to reason and sullied a dove
But how could they try you or demystify you with words

You're a city that's pulling me still
You keep me from sleeping and strengthen my will
The gates they are strong but they open for song I
have heard

You're lovely to me yes you are
You're the beautiful one that time cannot mar
Your lost in the eyes of my love as she cries all for
joy

You're lovely to me yes you are
You're the elusive chord on my old guitar
You're hidden 'neath veils that our love making fails
to destroy

There's all I desire in your voice
I fear I am bold but you leave me no choice
You know that to ask me to turn from my task would be
vain

You're a rose that for no man will yield
You have many names and all of them sealed
Your empire is vast from the first to the last you
remain

You're lovely to me yes you are
It's war all the time but you bare no scar
You glitter like sand as it runs through my hands to
the sea

You're lovely to me yes you are
You're my drunken companion it's right that you are
Your love takes me higher your love is the fire in me

    General Commenti first heard this song on the kingsmill advert and at first it didn't strike me at all, but one day i listened closer and decided that i totally loved it and had to download it =)
    basically, he's singing about this really abstract girl, who, to him, is 'lovely'. i'm guessing there are elements of eros in his love for her from the "You keep me from sleeping" and "our love making" and "There's honey and sap in the couch of your lap". i don't know if their relationship is completely conventional or not because of his mentioning "but i can't make you mine" but he loves and desires her, and when they're together (and drunk) he feels they are made for each other: "And I'll see you tonight in a local bar We'll be wed before dawn and by morning
    We're one and the same"

    General CommentI heard this song on the kingsmill adevert and though it was so sweet!

    Once i listened to it a few times I thought it could be conveyed in a kind of religeous way, ;

    "There's nothing you would not provide
    When all is despair you are there at my side
    It is you that is near it is you that gives ear
    when I pray"

    and "You're a rose that for no man will yield
    You have many names and all of them sealed
    Your empire is vast from the first to the last you
    remain" ... "It's war all the time but you bear no scar"

    It seems to be talkinga bout, God.

    hmmm, maybe it's just me.

    General CommentIt isn't to do with God. I didn't realise people referred to him as a woman and that he had deep blue eyes, a craving, and got drunk with people.

    It's just a simple song about a woman he loves, and the odd things he notices about her that he thinks make her unique and 'lovely to him'.
