Lyrics

Where Do I Begin

Once again, you've caught my eye
Your gaze is strong, unyielding
And has drawn me in,
A seedling to the sky.

While locking eyes, the clouds appear
The shadow makes a fog
of what once was clear

Where do I begin?
And where do you end?
closest moments won't reveal
which part is you, which part is me
Where do I fit in?
Whose shape am I taking?
Blurry eyes and changing dreams
who's image in the mirror will I see?

I'm softened by your satin breath
the blanket warms my jaw
but it veils my silhouette

Your whisper shares a secret wish
A shiver down my centre line
my body's just a wisp

Where do I begin?
And where do you end?
closest moments won't reveal
which part is you, which part is me
Where do I fit in?
Whose shape am I taking?
Blurry eyes and changing dreams
who's image in the mirror will I see?

If love is said to give the strength of stone
Why do I feel more like silt, drowning in the undertow
How can I surrender if I just can't let go of what I know

You slip your strong hand in mine
Our palms stuck tight together
A doily on a valentine

Before too long, our touch is one
We sit, in stillness
'til our hands are as separate as two rays of sun

Where do I begin?
And where do you end?
closest moments won't reveal
which part is you, which part is me
Where do I fit in?
Whose shape am I taking?
Blurry eyes and changing dreams
who's image in the mirror will I see?
