When It Comes To You

 

Flowers fade and love is made

While fools are out, out on parade

But I built you a slipper made of gold

Love is blind or so Iím told

Iíll re-write the greatest poems of

A dreamerís failures, hope and love

Thereís a sound of bows against the strings

Itís like Dominique and angel wings

 

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

 

So put a tourniquet around my heart

To keep it from falling apart

Byron, Shelley, Shakespeare and Keats

Dripping off the page into these streets

Yeah, in miracles I still believe

ĎCause I think youíve got one up your sleeve

 

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Yeah, you dance across the water

And you sail my skies of blue

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

 

The scent on this scarfís growing weak

I left on Sunday incomplete

I swim across these ancient floors  (?)

To drown in the colors all around your door (?)

 

Been feeding this fire with gasoline

She moves like a sphinx in my dreams

Am I being smart or just a fool

Iím broken glass and sheís a jewel

Pardon me for goiní on about

A love that I canít figure out

Into the nighttime skies Iíll cast

A prayer of hope that this will last

Through the valleys often times Iíve fled

A bounty still out on my head

Iíve done some damage from coast to coast

Destroyed some things I needed most

But precious is the one I see

I see her looking back at me

 

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Yeah, you dance across the water

And you sail my skies of truth

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

Thereís something greater than me

When it comes to you

 

Thereís something greater

Thereís something greater

Thereís something greater
