Lyrics

Round and hard and soft and flat

The long the short the thin the fat

But how do I hear music

And what it does to me

When I listen to your voice

And hear angels sing

 

And this, this is just a body

And you, you are sunlight

You are rushing wind

How can I conceive it

How can I hold you

In these tiny hands

 

Smooth and dark and rough and pale

Sinew muscle tooth and nail

But how do I see colors

And when they do to me

The vibrant red of every rose

That you give to me

 

And this, this is just a body

And you, you are sunlight

You are rushing wind

How can I conceive it

How can I hold you

In these tiny hands

 

And how do I feel love

And what you do to me

When I look into your eyes

And it’s your heart I see

 

And this, this is just a body

And you, you are sunlight

You are rushing wind

How can I conceive it

How can I hold you

In these tiny hands
