This Love of Ours

Line your heart with celebration
sell your soul for free
drum desire throughout your bones
until they boom like megaphones
that you’re in love with me

Drift your net in contemplation
run without your shoes
smell roses in the wintertime
eat a grape from tomorrow’s wine
and know I love you too

and you and I and moon and sun
will light the dark for everyone
and you and I will outshine stars
all of them for this love of ours

Line your heart with anticipation
line your body too
soak my song into your bones
my fluid voice a holy tone
that sings me soft to you

and you and I and moon and sun
will light the dark for everyone
and you and I will outshine stars
all of them for this love of ours
