lyrics

Heart beats beating
Words lose meaning.
A gentle thunder in my ear,
Love-rushed blood is all I hear.
Now you’re leaving
Taking facts deceiving what’s really in my heart.
Your truth a smoke cloud around my head
Dissipating so fast, too fast to be read.

And truth is
Elusive
At the best of times.

When we strip back all the fear
There’s only the love that you hear
And all the clumsy things that you say
No longer get in the way

Something drives me
But it is nothing like me.
I’m but a creature in the dark
Blind without the light that shines from a free heart
I can’t see you
There's an outline but you’re see through
Or is that just my eyes?-
Clouded by a premonition of an unformed love’s demise.

And truth is
Elusive
At the best of times
But worse, through this
Obtrusive
State of mind.

Sometimes things get out of line
When your heart’s beating double time
And all the clumsy things that you say
Just go and get in the way.
So just strip back all the fear
Until there is only love that you hear
Then all the clumsy things that you do
Come from a place of truth
