lean

let me
lean like this
forever

and
let me
remember the
time

when all was
calm

when all was
silent

except
for the sound
of your heart

beating like mine

......in perfect time

(hold)

quicksand

can there be
nothing more
but a quicksand
between us?

must the words
i say
always sink me
further into
the darkness?

can't i be
as much of a
light
as you are
to me?

oh why must
i be

the shadow

in a sky
full of
the promise
of rainbows

(hush)

lost in

i speak
a language
you've never
even heard of

i repeat
and repeat

every word i say

watching words
between us

disappear

into the shadows
of our own
misunderstandings

(listen)

sometime in love

we spoke
for a moment

then i knew
you had to go

we saw
each other
for an instant

then you went
along your way

but you left me
recharged
and i sent with you
my love

and all the burdens
fell away

for just a moment
for just an instant

for just a sometime in love

(grow)
