It seems to me you live like a shadow, always waiting
For a flame to burn and flicker your dark beauty
Upon the wall, never shining in your own right
In your own light
But forever, I'll think of you when I see a whisper
That floats through the air, unsaid
Like everything bottled up inside me,
When you're beside me
I can feel you when you think of me in the night
When your pillow's soft and your blanket's warm
But empty thoughts rob you of protection
I have a collection
When you step outside and God strokes your cheek
Like the wind where I've kissed you with shut eyes,
Do you open yours and really see?
Do you see me?
You're a fly in a web, choking on your every thought
If I could tell you a secret, I'd confide that
Today's the only day that matters, so don't blink
What are you running from, or is something you're chasing?
I wonder when grace will lead you back to the softness of my arms
I sing a song of hope that's thin but stong, on a mission
