Waltzing Across The Water


story to story... we sit by the sea

tying our lines together

i watch the wind float over me

as you breathe to the beat of the heather


coming up slowly

watching our ghosts in the fog move between light and picture

being here only

host to the notes of a song we repeat like a prayer


waltzing across the water

gliding on the skin

this is how all my dreams begin


we talk about freedom... we talk about times

when the trees were all leading us somewhere

we talk about heaven... the notion that only

some of us ever end up there


coming up slowly

seeing the truth in the hues as our thoughts are all colours

now i am grateful

now i am clear... now iím open... now i am yours


waltzing across the water

gliding on the skin

this is how all my dreams begin
