Lyrics

When I found this
My language in a way
I began to speak
And my soul was free
On a gust of inspiration

She was soaring over the walls built with shame
and self doubt, and a midnight curfew
A form I had not yet seen engulfed me...

I was standing on the deck
in the rain listening to jazz
Smoking a reefer cigarette
and I swear I swear
I didn't think of you once

But I thought maybe
Love is what you've been missing
Cause love is not what you've been giving
Maybe getting is all you've known till now
Or maybe you've forgotten how

He said "do you write for you or other people?"
I said "other people"
I said "I want them to see the beauty
that I can but just can not seem to touch,
which is only a metaphor for all of us."
I said "I think I'm trying to capture a moment
I think my whole life I've been trying
to capture that moment"
He said "one thing you can be sure of,
is that you never will"

I thought maybe
Love is what I've been missing
Cause love is not what I've been giving
Maybe getting is all I've known till now
Or maybe I never even learned how

"Lets try and keep things out
of the space that divides."
You said "the cracks between where we lie"
And we lie around so much,
we lie around, yes we lie around
We lie around, we just lay around the truth.
So much.

Until you are...
Getting, getting, getting, getting, going, gone!
You are...
Getting, getting, getting, getting, going, gone.
You are...
Getting, getting, getting, getting, going, gone.
You are...
For your love, for your love, for your love.

Cause I don't want to wait today for your love.
No, no, no, no.
I don't want to wait today for your love.
