I want a love that’s smooth and sweet
Pure and plentiful like
Cold, clear streams emptying into
Brilliant and beautiful bays
The secret to the vitality of life
A pick-me-up, a warm cup of tea

I want a love that swallows me whole
Wraps me in its massive wings
Until I’m safe and sound
Gentle feathers stroke my cheek
To attain the one thing I’ve sought
For years, to feel safety within my soul

I want a love that refuses to die
Even when I’m burnt out like embers
It soars somewhere above
Still filling its lungs with the sweetest oxygen
Alive just as the breeze
As clouds, the air, every beautiful piece of sky
