lyrics

He sings a sweet song, I sit and stare
He’s alive and living, I sit and stare
I feel so connected, like I might even fit
It only lasts a minute so I’m trying to breathe it in

He dances bizarre, I can’t help but laugh
And when he plays the piano love gushes in my heart
I can feel everything, the ease and the weight
But nothing I do will make this moment stay

And here there is right, there is real, there is life
And the delicate souls are stronger
The delicate souls are stronger
The delicate souls are stronger
Than before....

He is eccentric and when he does speak
He seems to say those things I feel within the deep
The cosmos, the stars, they feel all aligned
As if this seat was fated for my find

He lifts his tee-shirt, I might have gasped
And tried to memorise that one little part
With balloons falling down, my lungs I emptied
For love had just overtaken me

And here there is right, there is real, there is life
And the delicate souls are stronger
The delicate souls are stronger
The delicate souls are stronger
Than before....
