"Soil, Silt, And Clay" as written by John Van Deusen, Robert Krueger and Eric Sturgeon....
(Concept: A love poem written in the back of a cold, gray spaceship.)

All that I am, dances for you.
My heart and my bones agree you are the reason.
I want to build you a beautiful life.
Walk with me to the end?
I'll tear my heart out
I'll tear my heart out.

Up from the mud you have pulled me.
Given me all that I've asked.
I would have drowned, but you're here now.
A warm bright sun while this winter it feasts on my soul.
Swallows me whole
But I've got you.

I sit quietly upstairs and revel in the
Impact you've made on me.
You are the reason
That I even try or hope at all.
Knowing that you'll be there when
I tear my heart out.
I'll tear my heart out.

Up from the mud you have pulled me!
Given me all that I've asked.
I would have drowned, but you're here now.
A warm bright sun while this winter it feasts on my soul.
Swallows me whole.
It feasts on my soul.
Swallows me whole.

It feasts on my soul!
It feasts on my soul!

But I've got you.

I'm lost in the woods
Of innocent wrong.
I know that you'll be there when
I tear my heart out.
I'll tear my heart out.
