Love's Too Familiar a Word lyrics

Rating: 4.24
Song Details
Artist(s)Ellis Paul
Album(s)Live

I stepped into the room late last night
because late is the time I keep
you were sleeping warm as coal
in a pocket of comfort and white sheets
but you don't startle anymore when I step into the room
though the hour is later than midnight
and neither window can place a moon.
";I missed you,"; you say
and it sounds like a promise
when whispered half asleep
your skin still damp with sweat
from thoughts your dreams refused to keep
I follow my memory to a switch on a light
";Shut your eyes"; my voice cut short
when darkness turns bright
";Do you love me?"; you say
but love is too familiar a word
for in this bed 10,000 times a phrase already heard
but, ";Yes, I love you"; speaks my reply
though I know I failed myself and you for not
matching how I feel with words of higher wealth
I know its lonely in the world tonight
because here is more than what's deserved
and the imbalance can't be summed in black and white
cause ";love's"; too familiar a word.
