RICOCHET (title track)
Untold, simplified, hung out on these lines to dry;
I am not sure that I want you
Truth is, this holding back is only reflecting that
old ache, the breath that’s held, to keep me safe
from, “it’s just as well…”
And I can’t praise what scares me this deeply,
’cause I see the path you’ve made, and I know you’re leavin’.
One day, ancient times, maybe I drew a line
and dared you to cross it, then you laughed
and sauntered in.
Truth is, it’s not the same with older eyes and a life to claim.
Frozen in time and space, to love you more
is a crazy place
That I can’t praise, that scares me too deeply,
’cause I see the finish line and I know
you’ve beat me
And love is a RICOCHET,
sweet are the words we taste.
The mirrors are face to face,
one breath, one inch away.
Under a velvet sky, star-struck by moonlit eyes,
I am not the past, I am not this fear and lack.
Truth is, we light this place
and a walk in time is a walk with grace
leading us beyond ourselves to our Selves
beyond what I can’t praise,
what scares me this deeply.
But oh, the love we made!
It’ll be ours completely…
Love is a ricochet, sweet are the words we taste!
The mirrors are face to face – one breath, one inch away.
One breath, one inch away, one breath, one inch away,
