sunlight on arbutus trees
peel back my skin and leave me
While cherry blossoms swirl around
the colour of love
make no sound.
As you fade behind a cloud,
I want you to know I'll always be around,
You can be with me
or you can go and do what you please,
I'll be happy.
I'll remain waiting still
roots webbed deep into your soul
I won't disappear.
For you are the sun and I am the tree
you are free to be
All I ask is you come back
and shine your light on me.
Starlight on faded gloom
I gaze at the moon and miss
Fireflies light the skies
angel dust falls like magic lies,
like my tears.
Through this sweet serenity
I remember your gentle melody
You say you can't speak to me
but the truth is I hear you clearly,
and don't want to believe
you would ever want to be anywhere
close to me.
For you are the moon and I am the sea
we both are so full of mystery.
Your gravitation pull on me
can't ever ask me to leave,
but I am free.
I'm choosing you even if you don't choose me
and all I need is your glow on me,
Sunlight on arbutus trees
on a mountain above a starlit sea
I know I can't request you stay
but I'll cherish the moments
If you must go, always know
my heart is rooted in your soul
I'm drawn to your gravity
you will always be with me
even if the same no longer holds true for you.
I'll be happy
if you are happy
with or without me.
