I’m overwhelmed by this torrent of love,
Dancing, cuz there’s poetry running through my head,
And I can’t shut it off, even if I wanted to;
I don’t know how it happened,
But my black and white past is full of colour now,
My dreams burst open in deafening confusion
Like fireworks on New Year’s Eve,
And I see hope down the purple road,
The fear is just a memory –
Indistinct cobwebs in the corners of my mind.
Somehow my love crosses oceans,
Skimming the waves, taking angels by the hand
Sweeping in the world and holding the nations close;
How can my feeble heart shake the earth?
I look back once more, read the words of yesterday
And I finally understand that this love isn’t mine at all –
It’s always been you inside of me.
