When I watch you sleeping
There’s nothing that you hide
When I smell you breathing
There’s a sweetness from inside
And when I feel you stirring
And the day is about to break
Outside wings are whirring
And the sky is there to take

I wonder how I got so close to you
And see the chances that you take
Without thinking I’m going there too
These are the promises you make
When your eyes are blinded by love
And the history of fate

When I hear you purring
Like a kitten and a lion
And I feel your softness
How you got it without trying
Then you roll and tumble
With your dreams still holding on
And I hear that rumble
In the stomach of the dawn

Today I paint my masterpiece
Tonight I trace my tears
Thinking through the road I took to you
And where I stumbled through the years

Today I paint my masterpiece
Tonight I trace my tears
Thinking through my path to you
And where I stumbled through the years
That’s when I knew I’d never hold you down
Repeating old roads and fears

Now the crows are calling
And the blackbirds sing in my ear
You got one eye open
And I’m smiling through my tears
But you’ll never see them
Here inside with my fears
In a place that’s fading away
And taking on new years
