you're as steady as the earth
your spirit never breaks
you're the one who keeps me standing
whenever my world quakes

the fire in your hands
burns right through my shell
you make me feel alive again
and bring me back from hell

your voice is flowing water
washing away my fear
you overwhelm me with acceptance
and make the pain disappear

your love fills the air between us
impossibly pure and sweet
i breathe you in and hope you know
my heart needs you to beat
