I don't know
Just what to say to you
But in my heart
I know this love is true
And in my head
The words just swirl around
Most of them
Never to touch down

Below the surface
I know you see it
Please help me
Liberate these feelings
From all the packing
And bubble-wrapping
Styrofoam peanuts
They're driving me nuts

Letting go
The only way to grow
A moment's leap
And may our river flow
So let us let
These ghosts now take their leave
And we will have
Just what we believe

In what's before us
Love will conceive it
I'll see that
Warm is what you're feeling
When it is snowing
And winds are blowing
Growing together whatever the weathermen say
