lyrics

I've imagined you often
In the company of a child
Whose only word was your name
Whose eyes are the laughter
You've always seen in mine
The song he hums has only one line

You're the only one
You're the only one

In the silver light where we lay
By the window in our unlit room
Our souls, our hearts and our bones
Danced in the light of the moon

Waiting on the edge of a dream
For the light to shine in
Calling out our names
Into the silence we confide in

You're the only ones
You're the only ones

I imagine you often
In the company of a man
Whose only word was your name
Whose eyes are still the laughter
Like they've always been
The song he hums is
The one you sang to him

You're the only one
You're the only one
