I remember the first time I laid eyes on you
Early morning
And the forest hotel and all the things we've been through
New day dawning
You were such a timid child so shamefully shy
And full of dormant pain
Dulled by wind and rain
You kissed me like a wounded sigh
I'll love you 'til the day I die
And as the butterfly is born from the cocoon
And as a raindrop becomes a monsoon
And as the woman was once just a girl
Waiting to unfurl
From the oister comes the pearl

I remember how you used to hide behind me
Muted light
How good to see you now all the things you can be
Burning bright
You were such a damaged child too many broken dreams
A sun eclipsed by the moon
A black and white cartoon
From a whisper to a scream
Like a diamond in the gleam
And as the rapture becomes finally a swoon
And as an ocean breeze becomes a typhoon
And as the woman was once just a girl
Waiting to unfurl
From the oister comes the pearl
