Copper and Malachite

Goodnight darling, goodnight
I hope you sleep well
Goodnight darling, goodnight
I wish I could be there

Hear you breathing and watch
Your chest rise and fall
Wrap around you, you are
The same length as me

I was young hwen I first
Heard about something called love
Someone told me it was
Like finally waking up

Course I laughed then but now
You could say I believe
If I was smarter I'm sure
I'd write you a symphony

I barely know you
But I feel I've loved you before
I want to show you
This loose board in the floor

This is where I keep my heart
Not on my sleeve

Nothing's certain I know
But I'd like to believe
Something out there somewhere
Intends us to be

So I'll keep by you right here
Just as proud as April pie
Your eyes are colored in shades
Of copper and malachite

This song is simple
But it's the best I can do
'Cause it ain't so simple
To capture the way I feel
But I thought I'd try
