I've never needed wanted loved as I discretely do for you my dove

Forgotten the power and preciousness of the word so tragic

Understanding is not nearly known of the tender sound that drones

That drones within my heart to loan

To loan as if by magic

To loan or give to whom I please unconcerned with logic

Been locked in now I'm half sick

This distant dream this fairy tale has engulfed me leaving no trail

Reflections of a secret trail seen through my mirror so quick

Calm water of a secret kind let me know that you can be mine

The calm waters that fill your eyes

Your eyes that glitter with magic

But unaccompanied quiet brings real life to this magic

Now lost in heart so tragic
