Close your eyes and hold my hand

That is all my heart demands

Just a touch of who you are

Lonely in a sea of stars

Feel like feelings know me well

With you I can never tell

I can sense you in the grain of

Every syllable I say

Meet me in Kentucky field

Stitch me in show me what’s real

Feel your fingers trace my hand

Your touch is safe a place to land

Dress me in your gaze tonight

Colorfully black and white

This is who I am, and who I am is right

I can’t dream like this forever

When we fail to feel what is never spoken

From my lungs escape the whitest of smoke

Because I’ve finally found the one.

You be the ruse and I’ll be the caper

You pirouette and I’ll never let you stop

Roots above the trees

My mind is a sea of leaves

The yellow vein inside the frame of my beliefs

Your air, the air that I breathe,

The angel dust in the breeze

You’re everything I need

The only thing I see

You are an item, the fire in the brush

You give me chills whenever we touch

I am the hunger of age, a page,

Aching to be a chapter

If you’re a soul I’m your mate

If you’re the past I am fate

If you’ve got time I could stay

If you’re alive I will wait

Brisk pace, brisk pace

I ache to feel an ache

The sentry by the padded cell inside my soul is slain

Free to act according to the nature in his name

The warrior that rests within begins to breathe again

Meet me in a raindrop, falling on a rooftop

Dance with me until we find the words that we should act on.
