i tried to kill the girl inside,
who hides behind my ice blue eyes;
i learned to love and say goodbye,
i touched your soul and kissed the sky.
your wicked lips and taunting breath,
had churned my heart within my chest;
i closed my eyes and laid to rest,
to breathe the wind...'come from the west.
a perfect song; a perfect dream,
a perfect you, or so it seems;
a crippled smile 'turned to a beam,
a crisp laugh echoes; pure, and clean.
a step towards home, a leap towards love;
a call, a tarry, like a dove.
i turned my eyes to stars above
and wondered why they saw so much.
the thing i want is only this,
our lips to touch; a lover's kiss.
your eyes contain my sheltered bliss,
so set me free,
it's you i've missed.
