lyrics

How much is too much?

How close can I feel to you?

Do you know how many prayers I prayed

Before I let myself be into you?


No, I haven't put you on a pedestal

You showed me your true colors

There's a hurt there that touches me

a place inside that splits from the heat


Masters teach you how to excel in, lovers to dedicate yourself

we pray like Jonah to be vomitted on dry land

The empty void must be filled by any means

Existence certified, existence skin-tight


Well i know you're no angel

but i can feel how good you are

i want to sing to you now

the way birds do after the rain


Your arms are as wide as a harbor

And from this harbor

Spain sent its ships

To see if distant lands were real



The harbor had appeared in a dream

It was vivid and it was mean

Sailors lost their tongue

When they saw their destination



They stood on the decks

And on the unsounded sea

They could hear from the depths the most hidden joys

the most hidden laments


they surrendered to love


Let the music speak

Hear my heart, Feel the beat

Like a tom tom drum

It crosses mountain, valley and sea



Joy radiates from me

Up to London, over to New York City

Pell mell, rolly polly

I feel my way



And this demon inside me

I know It won't break me

There's no turning back from love



Your arms are as wide as a harbor

And from this harbor

Spain sent its ships

To see if distant lands were real



Your hand caresses an animal

I am this animal

i trade my freedom for you hand


and I slip my fingers

In the palm of your hand
