• Take your time
    Make peace with the day
    Lie on the ground and think of me
    Nevermind what people will say
    Talking is thoughtless and cheap

    I only said it to be kind
    I won't pretend to be naive
    And thoughts arrive...
    Like leaves on the page
    Trying and hoping to be
    You and I like birds in a cage
    Dreaming how once we were free
    The evening closes on the
    I saw you hiding in the eaves

    Don't leave me hanging on the wire
    A shadow underneathe the trees

    I only want you to be mine
    I only want you to be free
    If either one of us is right
    It must be seen to be believed

    I only want you to be mine
    I only want you to be free
