So lie with me and be my love just for now
Stay with me all through the night
Be as close to me as you can be
Til morning sets you free

When you saw me I was broken,
I was scattered in the dust
Like the way you feel sometimes,
When you feel too much
You put your hands around my face
Like a circle 'round the sun
When I thought that it was finished
It had only just begun

So lie with me and be my love just for now
Stay with me all through the night
Be as close to me as you can be
Til morning sets you free, again

You shine across the morning
As I turn to face the east
You told me how to give away
Things never meant to keep
Your love is rolling like a wave
That breaks right over me
One hand can hold the ocean
But will never stop the sea

So lie with me and be my love just for now
Stay with me all through the night
Be as close to me as you can be
Til morning sets you free

Your skin it looks so golden
Standing naked in the sun
Your soul it feels so holy
As close as the earth can come
A wave can cut a stone to sand
And the wind can break your bones
I'm wondering how you're doing now
When you are alone

So lie with me and be my love just for now
Stay with me all through the night
Be as close to me as you can be
Til morning sets you free, once again, once again
