Want to write something big
something to turn you round make you think,
about all those years we hid away
when why was the only word that touched my lips
why, when we had everything two people need
there was that something missing in between.
Want to write something wild,
to lose the scream I chase inside
I want to take your hand in mine
wipe out the blame ask can’t we try
to find the flame that never came,
I want to write something sweet
to make you smile
and bless your sleep
with gentle memories of me.
I want to bend time back
grab all the wisdom I now know
erase the marks I left on you
reclaim a harvest we both shared
just let you know how much I care.
I want to rip to bits the tag
the price we paid to find myself
I’m here now bright in winter’s frost
and I can’t replace the peace we lost
but if you’d turn around you’d see
that I still love you , and you still love me .
