lyrics

Walk in a Mystery

& I will dream of the ocean
& bright waves
& then I’ll know that I’m asleep
& you will be there before me
all shining
mysterious & deep

& with a smile you’ll undo me
so gentle
until I’m lying at your feet
& everything will be still then
‘til evening
& we’ll go walking down the beach

& we’ll walk in a mystery
we’ll walk in a mystery
we’ll walk in a mystery

warm air across our faces
love shimmering
like heat through a coal
& everything will be translucent
light streaming
like fire from our single soul

& when we touch
the surface will be gone
we’ll reach in & drink our fill
& all of this has been foretold
it always was, & it always will

it’s a mystery
we’ll walk in a mystery
we’ll walk in a mystery
