One Love Borrowed

Good bye my dream in the mourning

I see your back when I close my eyes

You leave this tiny room without me

Before you could doubt me, you made me old and wise

Sometimes I forget for a while

I smile and have such plans to make

Even though I know in  my heart you were born sleeping

I’m reaching to you awake

And I

Take one breath

And go on

I take another

And look to the next dawn

I walk with one foot in light

And one in shadow

Because of one love borrowed, I take

One breath

And go on

I take another

And look to the next dawn

I walk with one foot in light

And one in shadow

Because of one love borrowed

Goodbye my sweet dream and longing

I release you feeling tight in my chest

Questioning all I believed all, all my roles were conceived in

This vision we laid to rest.

Somehow I cook and clean anyway,

I play the part until I learn why

Even though I know, really know, you were born sleeping

I’m reaching for you awake

Flip book through life pretty please, no I will never speak with ease of clouds with silver lining

Though you can’t be with me now, I hope somehow you are safe and warm with sun a’shining

And I

Take one breath

And go on

I take another

And look to the next dawn

I walk with one foot in light

And one in shadow

Because of one love borrowed, I take

One breath

And go on

I take another

And look to the next dawn

I walk with one foot in light

And one in shadow

Because of one love borrowed
