Melody of You

Album: Divine Discontent (2002)
  • You're a painting with symbols deep,
    Symphony soft as it shifts from dark beneath
    A poem that flows, caressing my skin
    In all of these things you reside
    And I want you to flow from the pen, bow and brush
    With paper and string, and canvas tight
    With ink in the air, to dust your light?
    From morning to the black of night

    This is my call
    I belong to you
    This is my call
    To sing the melodies of you
    This is my call
    I can do nothing else
    I can do nothing else

    You're the scent of an unfound bloom
    A simple tune
    I only write variations to sooth the mood
    A drink that will knock me down to the floor
    A key that will unlock the door
    Where I hear a voice sing familiar themes
    Then beckons me weaves notes in between
    A tap and a string, a bow and a glass
    You pour me 'till the day has passed Writer/s: MATTHEW PRESTON SLOCUM
