When I stretch you relax
it's your natural affliction
to sit and to stare
mirroring my unfounded addiction

Just rest baby, rest now
close your eyes, let me do the talking
put your hands on my belly
call that feeling fulfilling

Even if it is only contentment
can we invent our own form of happiness?
I'm finding it harder and harder to sleep
upon a heart so restless

Slow down love, slow down
movements static like breathing
if it helps we can break and search
those molten eyes for meaning

Hold on please, hold on
just a few seconds longer
tighten that grip; you know
we'll lie anyway, saying
this way it will be easier to let go
