All In Your Eyes


When the room was dark
From somewhere the sun shined bright

When the tap was dry
I saw the waterfall from the window

When the wind was blowing hard
I found a cave and escaped

When the earth shattered the walls
I took shelter under the table

When there was weakness
I earned strength

Let the rain come down
And wash my tears
Feel my soul
And drown my fears

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
