Valtz De Mon Pere (Lovers' Oath)

Album: The Other Side of Desire (2015)
  • How can I tell you
    The way I feel when you're inside?
    You made this girl
    As young as the moon
    And old as the lips
    The wave that rests
    In the pool, guarding
    We come unknowing
    The where or the why
    Throwing back our weight
    Growing by and by
    Staring at what we've made
    As if we're not afraid
    As helpless as the wind
    As perfect as the sun
    At days end

    We'll watch each other
    Til we're sure we are safe
    Counting all the sheep
    That still pass this way
    And darling, as you dream
    You seem to glow
    With the faces that you know
    And I'm jealous that I can't be there
    We'll stay together
    We'll never part

    Our grandchildren will know us
    'Cause they're made of our heart
    And even though we're parted
    From the physical world
    I'll always be your girl
    And I'll watch the world
    For signs of love Writer/s: RICKIE LEE JONES
