Is my love the ocean,
But, babe, you won’t swim?
At ease, come with me,
And dive right in.

Is my heart the sky,
But, babe, you can’t fly?
Relax, take my hand,
And hold on tight.

You and your doubts, darling
Don’t you understand?
Oh, oh...
You and your doubts, darling!
Don’t you understand?
Oh, oh...

Is my heart a flame,
And, babe, you’re freezing?
Oh sweet, feel at ease,
And melt into my skin.

Despite the rhythms in my blood
And the dances that I dream;
Despite the ditties tripping off my tongue;
The melismata I breathe;
Despite the songs that hide inside my heart
And the keys beneath my hands;

I’d rather live in silence
Than live without you.
You and your doubts, darling,
Don’t you understand?

You’re the patch of sunlight in my overcast skies;
The breath of fresh air in my smoke.
You’re my lullaby when I can’t close my eyes;
The muse behind all that I wrote.

And don’t you understand?
Don’t you understand?
Through sun and through storm,
With you, I will stand.
