lyrics

I slept last night in the boughs of a tall tree
That stretched its branches skywards
If I have learned any lesson from sleeping beside you
I’d say keep your feet planted firmly on the ground

I rode many journeys both with and without you
Travelled the roads till my feet were their colour
I saw many stars even before I met you
When you held my waist and my feet left the ground

And oh, it hurts more than I can say
To have your whole world and then to have it swept away
A raging fire couldn’t do me any harm
And I know because I burn for you
I burn for you
I burn for you

I’ve known your love since before you could speak it
I held you closer than she ever will
We burned so bright that the night was extinguished
Bright as the music that flowed through our fingers
