Let's say for a moment
that I could fall in love with you
and you with me-

-that we were not separated
by mountains and oceans
that I could lie with you.

Somewhere further than the deserts
and lakes and valleys,
beyond the walls of war,

Is a place where I could run my fingers
through your hair, and hold your hand,
and kiss you, if I dared.

Let's say for a moment
that you're here with me
and stay, just for a moment

here with me.

#2

Autumn leaks through the creases in your brow,
lines that splinter like veins on yellow leaves.
White clouds bloom in the deep dark-blue
and colour the world with a misty morning haze


Ribs poke through translucent skin
like dimples on the surface of the moon,
while blue veins cut a path through hair
that stands on end like the trees
of some wintered spruce-wood landscape.


The ridges on your hands dip
and rise like desert dunes- coarse and gritted.
With yours in mine I trace them
like a hieroglyphic love song
that we carved through the ages.


There is a sourness found in new, wild things,
a distaste for youth,
lest I lose the ability to appreciate
the beauty of your centuries
painted in your skin.
We were born to be amazing.

Here I am in a fairy bower
Here I am in a tall-tall tower
Here I am hidden in a flower
Away from the big-big bad-bad world


Here I am in an ancient fortress
Here I am with a wonderous sorceress
Here I am in metaphorphosis
Away from the big-big bad-bad world


Here I am in a castle looming
Here I am in a forest glooming
Here I am a meadow blooming
Away from the big-big bad-bad world
We were born to be amazing.

I am my own unrequited love


Don't ever let them see you cry
It's the only thing that you have left
Hide away behind those eyes
And turn your heart to stone
Turn your heart to stone
Turn your heart to stone


Keep it bottled up inside
It's the only thing you have to own
Open it up where you hide
But only when you are only
When you are only
When you are alone


You are the world to me
And I hope one day you will see
That I will always love you
I will always love you
But you will never love me


You are the world to me

(D Chord: 1/3 - 2 - 1 - 2
A Chord: 1/4 - 2 - 1 - 2)
(Repeat with variation to A Minor or D Minor)
We were born to be amazing.

Acres


My mother, my mother, she drifts down the river
My mother, my mother, she drifts down the river
There's no love that I could give her
My mother, my mother, she drifts down the river

For once we played in these fields of green
And she sung to me by these waters serene
But they don't know, you'll never believe
Awful, the awful things she has seen

My lover, my lover, she drifts down the river
My lover, my lover, she drifts down the river
There's no love that I could give her
My lover, my lover, she drifts down the river

Once we lay down in these fields of green
And I sung to her by these waters serene
But they don't know, you'll never believe
Awful, the awful things she has seen


My daughter, my daughter, she drifts down the river
My daughter, my daughter, she drifts down the river
There's no love that I could give her
My daughter, my daughter, she drifts down the river

For once we played in these fields of green
And I sung to her by these waters serene
But they don't know, you'll never believe
Awful, the awful things she has seen
