Behind These Walls


If the universe should shrink up and die
I would still hold on to you
Not through fear, or pain, or hope
But because, I love you

If my eyes that I trust went blind
Then all I'd ever want to see
Is the look I'll hold eternally
Of your face, as it smiles on me

' Cause girl you are my centre of my life, my thoughts
Heaven stands between you and Earth
And while I live, I need no more
Than your love behind these walls

Break

As we make love, it occurres to me
All time is measured, by our heartbeat
A moment stolen from eternity
And ignites the flame of love through you and me
And while I live, I need no more
Then your love, behind these walls

If the universe should shrink up and die
I would still hold on to you
Not through fear, or pain, or hope
But because, I love you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
