lyrics

I stand in awe, can do no wrong
She lies in bed, my voice is gone
Her eyes look deep into my soul,
a goddess who saw the days of old
What she sees, I do not know.
She knows my heart, my mind, my soul
Whispering, she calls me close.
What she wants, only she knows

I reach out to touch her, my fingers clutch the air
Apparition, holy ghost,
she’s never far, like when she’s close

I look deep inside, to the depths of my own heart
And there my lover lies,
singing, “Never shall we part.”

How could a goddess condescend
to heal a heart a woman rent?
She needs a god to make her whole,
not this fearful, furious fool

All alone, inside my head
I stumble toward my lonely bed
Loneliness gives way to love,
all around, below, above

I look deep inside, in the stillness of the night
And there my lover lies,
singing, “Lie with me tonight.”
