lyrics

What it must be to love you
Feel that love reflected back at me
To be the mirror for all the best about you
To know you saw the same in me

I’ve walked wounded through the shadows
Had to tie a tourniquet around my heart
I’ve cut myself off from things I wanted most
But a word from you could take away my pain

I can’t adjust the dose, can’t slow the bleed
Love will be the life within my veins
The ringing in my ears
Is the sound of washing hands
There are some things I can never say

The sweetness of the moment
The sweetness of your mind
The summer sky, gravid with lightning,
Reflecting the sparks in your eyes

I’ve walked alone down many winter roads
There were times I felt I’d never be warm again
The cold wind rifles through my clothes like a beggar looks for change
But your smile has all the warmth I’ll ever need

The ringing in my ears
Is the sound of washing hands
There are some things I can never say
I can’t cut the dose, can’t slow the bleed
Love will be the life within my veins
