My soul is resting on the solace of strangers
Sweet bitter longing as old as it's new
Blanket the heart, hands of an angel
Coating of light, love I once knew

Vessel and harbor
Castle and chamber
As you reveal to me,
What love is meant to be

Time like a circle beyond and before me,
Eternally floating not a second nor year
Nothing but nothing I feel can ever hurt me
And a bright moon of tear appears only to clear

Soothing and tender
Rapture and splendor
As you reveal to me
What love is meant to be

Holding inside very first breath
Slowly releasing my abundant last
Beauty beyond, pleasure surreal
Kernel the glide, valiant the mast

I’ve loved you forever
Forever and ever
As you reveal to me
What love is meant to be
You reveal to me
Love is meant to be
