I'm awakening the spirit
barefoot on the carpet;
I'm a little ancient.
I'm dancing in some basement,
so put your ear to my lips,
walk me to the corner,
let me be the one.

And I used to know everything
about everybody,
but as I'm getting older
less and less was true:
you were just an image—
an image among many—
but now I see behind it.
let me be the one.

now you're gonna let your light out
and burn a hole through my heart;
fear isn't in it—
trust me when I say it.
Trust what I'm becoming,
sitting here beside you,
closer every moment,
let me be the one.

Awakening the spirit
resting in my body;
fear isn't in it—
trust me when i say:
"I'm learning now to love it,
returning of emotion,
listening to you—
let me be the one!"

Awakening the spirit
resting in my body,
the woman I always said
was trusting what you say—
the being in our bodies,
but also in each other.
I'll be back this Sunday
let me be the one.
