lyrics

I’ll speak these words from deep within my heart.
Like a typical poet, I’ll yield myself and this I will not fight.
I know it’s taken me so long.
Think this song like a simmering stew.
The time is right to sing it for you.

I will protect you from the things that fly,
Use myself as a human shield and hold you tight.
Wake you from the night terrors that haunt your dreams,
Sing you songs and send you drifting back to sleep.
My love is like a cannonball in the deepest ocean, blue.
Don’t you know it baby that it only falls for you.

To tell the truth, I think of you night and day.
Not a single moment passes when I’m not wondering if you’re OK.
You are my red and green and blue.
Don’t you understand my girl, my world is colourless without you.

I will protect you from the things that fly,
Use myself as a human shield and hold you tight.
Wake you from the night terrors that haunt your dreams,
Sing you songs and send you drifting back to sleep.
My love is like a cannonball in the deepest ocean, blue.
Don’t you know it baby that it only falls for you.
