lyrics

Listen to the Forest

The sweet longing of the moon awash in a river's glow
Of a lover's kiss before the dawn of the first snow
The gentle brush of a breeze on an out-stretched hand
Of a soul’s vibration before it takes flight from an ever-greening land

I held my breath but you inhaled for me
I held my heart but you beat an extra beat for me
I held my eyes fastened in yours
Until you held my mouth open with the movement of yours

The moon, it is awash in a river’s glow
This lover longs for more kisses, before the first snow
The breeze, it lends its own outstretched hand
Calming my soul’s vibration so it can safely, land

I held my breath but you inhaled for me
I held my heart but you beat an extra beat for me
I held my eyes fastened in yours
Until you held my mouth open with the movement of yours

Our love is real-- at least for now, says this side of the moon
In a river’s glow-- at least for now, I say, with the tiniest, sweetest most gentle of swoons
In a breeze’s brush-- at least for now, before the sun’s high, at tomorrow’s noon
Just please, my dear, tell my soul not to leave this, not to leave this, too soon

I held my breath but you inhaled for me
I held my heart but you beat an extra beat for me
I held my eyes fastened in yours
Until you held my mouth open with the movement, the movement, the movement, of yours
