if i was only wise enough
to know everything sure and true about myself,
you would not be here.
what have i brought you to, my love, that you have followed me?
it is all my heart is worth
and more than i would ask of you.
but i was afraid of a world where you did not exist;
an empty sp-ce i was not walking through.
and you were there between myself
and the darkened wings;
you took the pieces of our lives
and made us something new
but now you don’t see me trying, do you?
so if you want to surrender, then i will too;
or if you want me to carry on, then i will do.
and the night falls around us,
pressing us apart
with the weight of silence –
such is my love for you.
the heart of the matter, that the both of us can’t hide,
beats on against us
with the rhythm of the tide;
and through this apathy,
wider than the sky,
i’m feeling everything like nothing in my life.
i’m feeling everything
in my life.
