VI.   Studio E – the Lyrics


Rugs on puddles

Coats over oceans

How do you see me

How do you want to perceive me

Do we make too much of nothing

Or are nothings really something

Pay attention to our hearts

Intuition bends our minds 

Rugs on puddles

Coats over oceans

Chivalry and ecstasy

Honesty and fantasy

Helplessness and shoulders

Grains of sand to wear down boulders

The light that shines

Can also blind

Use me to cross that bridge of time

Use me to safely bring you home

Dress me, clothe me

Keep me warm

I will safely bring you home

As love is redefined

As love is redefined.
