From the mountains to the oceans,
The places where we live.
From your mouth and on through
my mouth,
It is everywhere,
Pulsing in the heat of your warm breath.

In the trains and on the runway,
In factories and schools,
From the safety of your long arms,
I reach endlessly from here.
Our finger prints are everywhere.

You're a daughter, I'm a son,
I almost said "I love you."

A billion tons of light explodes,
we are illuminated now.
A billion tons of light explodes,
we are illuminated now.

As I lie against your body
That will one day let you down,
From the safety of this moment,
I reach endlessly from here,
I reach endlessly. Endlessly.

This adds up to more than us,
I almost said "I love you."

A billion tons of light
we are illuminated now
A billion tons of light explodes
we are illuminated now

    General Commentso beautiful. it melts my heart every time i listen to it
    it has such a sweet melancholy about life and death and the temporariness of everything here and yet how much it all means to us
