holy ground

my lover stands on holy ground
my lover stands on holy ground
in the scarred and barren field
where my weakness is revealed
he holds space for me to heal

i carry him inside my heart
i carry him inside my heart
i would know him anywhere
sandalwood and vetiver
underneath the moonlit stair

i’m a river gone wild
sometimes woman, sometimes child
pressed against my lover’s skin
i breathe out, he breathes in

his hands are strong upon my back
hands are strong upon my back
when i feel him move inside
tracing circles deep and wide
the mystery becomes untied

what my lips have kissed is mine
what my lips have kissed is mine
the rest he offers willingly
life and blood and company
diamond water alchemy

i’m a river gone wild
sometimes woman, sometimes child
pressed against my lover’s skin
i breathe out, he breathes in

my lover’s light will guide me home
my lover’s light will guide me home
in his arms where i can rest
a quiet hush, a soft caress
my lantern in the wilderness

I wonder WHO that could be :roll:
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

I know exactly what you mean, Sally.

Her words take my breath away. I can't wait to hear her expansive voice with them and her genius with melody. It is so her. I can hear her singing the words "sandalwood and vetiver."

"pressed against my lover's skin,
I breathe out, he breathes in"

This is love that "fits"...totally, bodies aligned....in unison...

I agree with all the selected lyrics. This is one of those perfect songs where every lyric withstands scrutiny and can be quoted as beauty. When I commented that this song took my breath away, it happened when I read the line "I breathe out, he breathes in" ~ breathtaking beauty in every line.
