You give me the wings
Make them fly
And the most precious things
Are the diamonds I prize in thine eyes

Every star in frameless hold
And if I may be quite so bold
A universe of worth untold aside
Voluminous the skies wherein reside

Your light, it guides; Electrifies
Each reconciled horizon
The skyline swoops to kiss the earth
Concur of stardust splicing
The virgin springs undress; Refreshed
By every blessèd gesture
I wear you in the deepest part
Of heart upon my vesture

Nothing to contest
Abreast of underlying fracture
Thus I kneel to shine thine bust
In manner supervisory
Remind the finery as to its stature
Unmatched is the splendour of a flower in full bloom
Kaleidoscopic room to timeless, spaceless, changeless view

Each self-believing smile contagious
Green mile travelled advantageous
Nothing callous
Nothing heinous
Reinventing constellations

Patient is the moon as it illuminates the heron’s glance
Replacing fear with music steeped of chance
Replacing fear with music steeped of chance
Replacing fear with music steeped of chance

I wear you in the deepest part
Of heart upon lapel
Replenishing the diamond well
As sacred waters swell; Bejewelled
On altered course to northward chord
Disordered thoughts mere salt and sauce
I marvel thine unaltered form
While steady wealth of kisses live to tell
A tale of sweet reprise your eyes know well
A tale of sweet reprise your eyes know well

Friendship is a gift compelled to elevate by nature
Love is ne’er shortlived when raised
In praise and lifted favour
Innovating something greater than the sum of parts
Once we lead the way with grace parading humble hearts
Nothing to lament
Where ventured ‘neath the heron’s glance
I wear you in the very deepest part

Each sign of life offers clear line of sight
To the one true divine innovation
One true divine innovation
One true divine innovation
Each sign of life offers clear line of sight
To the one true divine innovation

You are every tear I ever wept
The only secret my heart ever kept
You are every tear I ever wept
The only secret my heart ever kept

You give me the wings
Make them fly
And the most precious things
Are the diamonds I prize in thine eyes
Every star in frameless hold
And if I may be quite so bold
A universe of worth untold aside

You give me the wings
Make them fly
And the most precious things
Are the diamonds I prize in thine eyes
Every star in frameless hold
And if I may be quite so bold
A universe of worth untold aside
A universe of worth untold aside
Voluminous the skies wherein reside

You are every tear I ever wept
The only secret my heart ever kept
You are every tear I ever wept
The only secret my heart ever kept
