“How glad I was to be myself and use my heart once more.”
How glad I was to wake today, and walk through an open door
How glad I am to see your eyes, and see myself in you
You smile bright and light the sky, its luminance- for just you and I
To be loved that way again I say, but can I even remember how it tastes?
To love that way again I pray, the love that comes with just one name
I hold you close, we dance, we jig, and for just you my heart grows big
We paint the night’s sky with our colors, we toss we turn, under the covers
How glad I am to be myself and love the one that I adore
How glad I am to have your hand and walk along the ocean shore
You smile bright and light the sky, the heavens tear and start to cry
To be loved that way again I say, we run, we dance in pouring rain
To be loved that way again I may, the love that comes with just one name
You hold me close, we laugh, we play, has it been so long since you’ve been loved that way?
We love, we hate, destroy and create, but in our arms we are always safe
How glad we are to be ourselves, with or without love how could we be anything else?
How glad we are for every day, with each sunrise and sunset I speak your name
You smile bright and light my life, neither pain nor evil will make me strife
To be loved that way again I scream! Certain each time I’ll be woken from a dream
To be loved that way again I shout! Alive with your consumption dead without!
I hold you close in my arms- I’ll wipe away all your scars
We paint the night’s sky with our colors, we toss we turn, under the covers.
To be loved that way again I say, to be loved and to love, I just may.
