lyrics

CHIAROSCURO

Touching the light that love makes
I find you in the darkness
Knowing the soft of your skin
Feeling your heartbeat within
I'm moved by the hold of your hand
The warmth of a woman and man
Together

Held in the quiet of your embrace
Touched by the softness of your face
Watching the deep of your sleep
Hoping that you're mine to keep
Holding the love that's been born
Up to the light of the dawn
