Radiate

Listen to Radiate by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Star Guitar by The Chemical Brothers

i wake to the rise and the fall of your chest
against mine it is pressed
as you kiss my day awake
i feel weightless in embrace
as though a leaf within the breeze
and all i see
through these wide eyes
is all i feel
is all at ease
for all i see
reveals to me
that you and i
are like a tree
and i believe
in all i breathe
for all i breathe
is all we see

i wake to the precise dream
that invited me to sleep
my eyes stream
from the bright beams
that delight me as i leap
and all i see
through these wide eyes
reveals to me
the wings to fly
to prize the skies’ divine reprise
beneath which lies an ocean deep

our hopes and dreams
are daisy chains
the frozen streams
our mazy lanes
each stolen night
a lazy day
and all i see
through these wide open eyes
confides that you and i
are like a tree
and radiate
the kind of light
that blinds the eye
to redesign
the greatest faith

even in the hazy shades of winter
i can taste the bloom
feel weightless in embrace
of every dream i dare to chase with you
each fairy tale came true
the very same day i returned to you
you offered me a safe place
with the faith to see it through the eyes
of all we see
through these wide eyes
for all we see is true

i wake to the rise and the fall of your chest
against mine it is pressed
as you kiss my day awake
feel your lips against my wrist
feel your fingers as they trace a smile that stretches endless miles to light my face
you offered me a safe place
when the pains were at their greatest
you made a promise
to my soul
too honestly
to break it
even when my knees are grazed
i never feel the need to bleed in vain
for all i see
through these wide eyes
is every hopeful dream dreamed wide awake

my faith is blind
my artist wild
my artist brave
my darkest shade
my light of day
each stolen night
we bid reclaim
are safe here
in this place

we are a tree
these are our leaves
these are the veins
of all we see
for all we see
are daisy chains
and weightless in embrace
we are safe here
in this place
to radiate
to simply be.

i wake to the precise dream
that invited me to sleep
my eyes stream
from the bright beams
that delight me as i leap
and all i see
through these wide eyes
reveals to me
the wings to fly
to prize the skies’ divine reprise
beneath which lies an ocean deep

i wake to the rise and fall of your chest
against mine it is pressed
as you kiss my day awake
i feel weightless in embrace
as though a leaf within the breeze
and all i see
through these wide eyes
is all i feel
is all at ease
for all i see
reveals to me
that you and i
are like a tree
and i believe
in all i breathe
for all i breathe
is all we see
