Sit with me
and empty your mind
Give yourself to the darkness
Be her child
Don't be afraid
This is the last
moment before
the first time
I tell you
that I love you

Twice I've seen you now
We've spoken of many things
I've walked the ground of your home
And my first thought
when I saw you sitting there was
Oh, that boy is striking
And I stared too long
And I forgot to sing
Oh, you unraveled me
the first time
that I saw you

I will wait
in the silence
While you breathe
I won't be afraid
if you don't answer right away
Won't be afraid at all
'cause I know time
can't contain us anymore
Our first smile
had to be
a hundred years long

Oh, you unraveled me
the very first time
I saw you
And I'm ready now
to tell you
that I love you
