why did it take you so long

Why did it take you so long
I have been waiting for you all this time
All of my years that are gone
But now there’s a new chance for a second life

____________ Eyes like the sea, storm like her touch
Came over me, moon and the stars_ after the dusk


"I never forgot you know_ your skin was a home I ran away from long ago_ But I never forgot! I found refuge in busy cities and broken down cars_
have tasted cigarette lips, collected ashes like fallen stars_ But I never forgot! How our hands fit like wedding bands, your eyes like the sea_ I never forgot!"

Why did it take you so long
My years have been lost without you in them
So many times I've moved on
Maps in the trash, now we’ll try it again

____________ Eyes like the sea, storm like her touch
Came over me, moon and the stars_ after the dusk


"Please forgive my fingers tracing the constellations in your freckles_
I have been homesick for your skin_ My flame is burning blue for you_
Feel it climbing your bones like octaves - touch my ribs like they're piano keys - there is a song in our heartbeats -- Hum it with me now, lover_
We are a melody we never forgot."

Why did it take you so long
To make up your mind and look for me in kind
I never thought I was strong
Enough to break down all the bridges behind

So hum with me now, eyes like the sea, your touch like a storm
That came over me, in bright major key, new lives we’re born
