It is as simple as skin on skin,
And as pure as day’s first light,
No words can justify the thing
That against all odds just might
Save the very soul of us.
For this I’d give up the arrogant
Cynical heart for one of trust
In you at least. This sentiment
Does not explain the strange wonder
Of smiles or laughs without control
That tear the darkest days asunder
Make the most broken parts of me whole
Rain will fall, the sun blaze and beam
Lightning through mist, the path is seen.
And we will walk beneath the stars
And sing our sorrows to moonlight
And I will show you all my scars,
And hold you through the chill of night.
And every clichéd simply joy,
Every overwrought romantic show
Every lovesick tool I will employ
So long as your sweet smile still glows.
Because I just want to make you soup
Mugs of tea and open hearth fires
Tell you your winged eyeliner’s cute.
This mountain road take us on higher,
Plunge on together not looking back,
The brightest blaze dressed all in black.
