Mine to hold

Mine to hold

There’s a note you play, that takes me away 

like a whisper, a touch it feels like such 

sweet melody that connects you and me 

close my eyes, feel you near through that sound that I hear 

inside, in my blood, like a flood 

of light to my heart, where do you end and I start? 

 

And I wonder if there’s a place for me 

In your music or your poetry 

Does our rhythm dance within your soul? 

or are you playing in a different key 

looking for a different me 

another heart to make you whole 

are your words not mine to hold 

mine to hold 

 

it’s an echo, that sound, you lost and I found 

a song from your past, written and cast 

like a stone in the sea for your love, not for me 

for the soul that’s apart, ripped from your heart 

still there but yet gone, its for her that you long 

to hold to your skin, touch that place deep within 

 

And I wonder if there’s a place for me 

In your music or your poetry 

Does our rhythm dance within your soul? 

Or do you feel it differently 

Are you looking for a different me 

another heart to make you whole 

your words aren’t mine to hold 

mine to hold 

 

will it ever be mine, that light that you shine 

on the scars across your heart, will we start 

to heal, to find love, to feel 

that note you play, that takes me away 

that whisper, that touch that feels like such 

sweet melody that connects you and me 

 

And I wonder if there’s a place for me 

In your music or your poetry 

Does our rhythm dance within your soul? 

Can you feel it differently 

Or are you looking for a different me 

Another heart to make you whole 

Can your words be mine to hold 

mine to hold
