You made my heart creep up into my throat
My lungs burst with need
My tongue make its darting way to the back of my teeth
The words forget to speak.
My darling was a horse that I could ride on
My darling was a bed I could have died on
You kept me standing up for eternity, hand on my cheek
The words forgot to speak.
So darling if you hear me
Can I say one last thing, the words
That I’ve been holding in?
And as you lie up in the stars I say
My darling, by your thoughts and deeds, you’ll never go away.
