From the recording Turtleback Mountain

Lyrics

I’m just a little bit in love with you
But there is nothing for us to do
It’s just a matter of happenstance
I think it happened ‘round the second glace

I saw it swimming in your sea glass eyes
The sweet reflection of a beautiful mind
Oh how I wanted to dive in deep
Into your crooked teeth

And so I’ll sing a song
Where our love can belong
It’s a secret world for this tender heart

And though we couldn’t kiss
By the North Sea’s freezing mist
There is still a way in which our love is true

I’m just a little bit in love with you
I wonder if you sort of felt it too
I do not dare presume such lovely things
Simply thankful for these sprouting wings

Spirit showed me in a vivid dream
What I’m allowed and what’s behind the screen
You have a worthy lover back at home
Sweet as a honeycomb

And so I’ll sing a song
Where our love can belong
It’s a secret world for this tender heart

And though we couldn’t kiss
By the North Sea’s freezing mist
There is still a way in which our love is true

And so I’ll sing a song
Where our love can belong
There’s a vastness living in each human heart

And though we didn’t kiss
There are many forms of bliss
And there is this world where our love is true
