You alone are holy
And you alone are beauty
You alone are lonely now
When we're alone, you told me
You tell me the whole sad story
We're never 'lone now
Looks like you let it out
For just a moment
And I could see how
You'd only lay me down
On sheets that tore and gave out
I'd never known anyone 'till now

Cause you belong in poetry
And you belong in fine things
But you belong to someone else
Yeah, you belong in prairie
And you belong in black sea
But you belong to no one town
You really let it out
For just a moment
And I could see how
You'd only lay me down
On sheets that tore and gave out
I'd never known a love 'till now

    General Commentthis is a wonderful song. . .I think it's about two people who are together, but know that things won't last. they just happen to be in the same place for a while, and she knows that eventually he will leave and go on to better things.

    General CommentIt describes those rare moments in life when one person will let down their guard to enable someone else to see their true self...it was a brief moment though, and this person usually is not where he or she should really be (I don´t mean that in the geographical sense, I think it´s more of a metaphor)
