Come to Me

Oh my darling, oh my starlight, oh my soft and gentleman

How your arms feel as the heavens

And your heart my very land

 

Come to me in echoed heartache, come to me in withered rhyme

Come to me in all your journeys, touching down beyond this time

Hold me like no other lover, pull my aching wants inside

Whisper to me my sweet darling, and tell me that you’re mine

 

Move as ocean, as you die for, every inch of me so sweet

Move right through me, as you fly for, this taste of golden wheat

Take my sweetness, take my loving, take the jewels that hide beneath

Through the quaking we shall quiver, and two shall be complete

 

Oh my darling, oh my starlight, oh my soft and gentleman

How your arms feel as the heavens

And your heart my very land

Come to me in echoed heartache, come to me in withered rhyme

Come to me in all your journeys, touching down beyond this time

 

 

Within the star-tears falling softly, within the breeze so gentle-pure

Whisper in my darkness, and be my sorrow’s cure

Whisper me in daylight, and tell me all’s the same

That you’ve come to take me always, and give me your strong name

 

Come and love me in your hours, as they reach past time set free

Come and enter every moment, in our building ecstasy

You are freedom in my making, you are none like those before

You are answer without question, you are joy poured out for more

 

Oh my darling, oh my starlight, oh my soft and gentleman

How your arms feel as the heavens

And your heart my very land

Come to me in echoed heartache, come to me in withered rhyme

Come to me in all your journeys, touching down beyond this time

 

Take my bounty, as your treasure, my longing, full indeed

Take in all this tender loving, in all the ways you need

Come to me in shadowed hunger, with your pain outstretched, forlorn

Come to me in darkness swallowed, with your heart so bitter torn

 

Call me angel, call me sunshine, call me light you’ll always need

Call me everything you long for, call me very honey seed

In my waking I have found you, and my spirit soars aflame

Call me sunlight of your morning, and return to me again

 

Oh my darling, oh my starlight, oh my soft and gentleman

How your arms feel as the heavens

And your heart my very land

Ukulele Love

This is a love song about a love song that never came.

This is a love song about a bloke who has no name.

He’s the make believe man inside her head. The one she draws in dreams.

He’s the make believe man with a make believe band who drums out melodies.

Oh, I love you, you’re so pretty

Oh, I love you, you’re so kind

Oh, I love you, you’re a darling

But I won’t take you as mine

This is a love song about a love song that never came.

This is a love song about a girl who has no name.

She’s the make believe charm inside his head. The one he pens in dreams.

She’s the make believe charm with a make believe hand which spells out misery.

But, I don’t love you, no I don’t

But, I don’t love you, silly bloke

But, I don’t love you, this you know

Though, I can’t and won’t let go

This is a love song about a silly song that never sang.

This is a love song about a song that has no name.

It’s the make believe story inside our heads. The one we spin in dreams.

It’s the make believe story with a make believe end, no truth, or so it seems.
