Kt Tunstall – Universe & U lyrics

A fire burns
Water comes
You cool me down
When I'm cold inside
You are warm and bright
You know you are so good for me
With your child's eyes
You are more than you seem
You see into space
I see in your face
The places you've been
The things you have learned
They sit with you so beautifully

You know there's no need to hide away
You know I tell the truth
We are just the same
I can feel everything you do
Hear everything you say
Even when you're miles away
Coz I am me, the universe and you

Just like stars burning night
Making holes in the night
We are building bridges

You know

When you're on your own
I'll send you a sign
Just so you know
I am me, the universe and you

    Oh, this song! I think it's about an unexplainable connection that is difficult to logically discern but is felt at the core. She explains that she feels as though he provides balance to her internal word bringing water when she's hot and warmth when she is cold; perfect balance. Then, she admires his immense intelligence which isn't boastful. He is more than he seems; intellect hidden behind "child's eyes;" still eager to learn and more so through compassion, yet she still can see how bright he is, a stark brillance that probably casts a shadow on everything without him.
    Like his eyes, the stars in the dark night become holes that allow her to peer into the light, (most beautiful imagery, ever!) she can feel him without words and without touch for they are bounded without boundaries, if that makes any sense. The bridges they build are unseen and incomprehensible, yet they certainly exist and she foregoes any reluctance to tell him overcoming her own shyness, understanding that he is just the same.
    A song about recognizing that forces beyond your control have brought you to eachother and knowing there is not ever another time in space that could possibly allow for this to happen. It breaks the laws of physics, per say and will stay deep inside for infinity!
