Something Wonderful

Charlotte, 2012

The taste of your sweet breath
The salt of morning tears
The last time I said goodbye to you
Hold on tight
So good to hurt so bad
So sad to fly away renewed
Go on laugh
Go on cry
It’s alright

There’s something wonderful about love
There’s something wonderful about love
There’s something lost about me with you
There’s something blind about the smitten few
There’s something wonderful about love

Was I meant to be yours
Only to find my fate so soon
Do you believe true love is blind
‘Cause I don’t know
It’s such a fragile thing
And weren’t you glad to be mine
Just don’t laugh
Please don’t cry
Just say so

There’s something wonderful about love
There’s something wonderful about love
There’s something dark about destiny
There’s something blue about you with me
There’s something wonderful about love

I know the call came late
The world had turned four times
Now I’m on your mind but I’m nowhere
In your world
Please kiss the little bird
I’ll watch over the cozy cage we shared
You thrilled me
You filled me up
You were my dreams, girl

There’s something wonderful about love
There’s something wonderful about
There’s something liberating death alone brings
There’s something funny ’bout a lot of sad things
There’s something wonderful about love
