Every time my heart beats, the world is spinning in love.

The whole world is growing in spring, the ripening that love will bring.

You will fly away like a bird that carries my love letter in your heart.

In my arms a natural wonder of the world, God embracing Mount Everest.

My veins play the violin for you in a romantic embrace.

Kissing your lips I see the flowers, you give my heart powers.

If you lose your soul there is a spare room in mine for you.

Sleep well tonight, I'll be the moon to protect your eyesight.

 

Every time my heart beats, I am resurrecting you from death.

The whole world is a heatwave in summer, you are Medusa turning me to stone.

Your loving blood is the emerald Mediterranean Sea.

I hold your hand as we walk into the sun.

Painting a picture of you, to where the skies are blue.

I cut my heart out of my body, it finds a new heartbeat in yours.

Blood in my heart is pouring like rain, I'll be your umbrella.

Sleep well tonight, under the stars you are my flying kite.

 

Every time my heart beats, I am making a rose for you.

The whole world is falling in autumn, my spine and ribcage a tree growing for you.

Every breath I take is the wind dancing around you.

Leaves fall like poetry so that I have all the letters to spell “I love you.”

I sit beside you when stars don't fall, they leak light when I answer your call.

If we die tonight I'll kiss you in your final breath.

My love for you won't fall, we're the season that never dies.

Sleep well tonight, you are my angel with a white light.

 

Every time my heart beats, we are the only people on the bouncy castle.

The whole world is snow in winter, you are Christmas in my heart.

The air may be cold but I will be your fire.

We make shapes in the snow and they will last for three months.

Your blood gets cold like a frozen sea, your heart a lighthouse without light.

I find you flowers and a rainbow, we walk from my heart to yours.

I love you forever and always, even on the black days.

Sleep well tonight, you are the eternity of white.
