The Song You Need to Sing to Me

Well, here it is, inspired by my iPod full of love songs which makes me feel like a Queen of Yore beset with amazing troubadors. I am so rich!

I Long to Tell You
Everything I enjoy and how thoughts of you
open my heart
the glow in your eyes, your sensitive spirit,
open mind and loving ways
all these have brought songs to lips before
but never mine to you
my lips to you
and at night when we lie together
our legs entwined
i will breathe across your ear
into your hair
this song of all I long to tell you

My adventures
and how all I have learned has made me a cup full of life
ready to pour into you
as you open yourself to me
everything that I have in my heart
will make your heart sing in reply
and at night when we lie together
our legs entwined
i will breathe across your ear
into your hair
this song of what I long to tell you

As we lay in stillness contemplating light and shadow
I continue my soul's song
bringing you close to me with sins and generosities
weaving tales for you alone
and reporting what I have told others
as you listen in your quiet way
I understand that you are always here with me
and at night when we lie together
our legs entwined
i will breathe across your ear
into your hair
this song of what I long to tell you

this song will never end
even after we are both gone
it will linger in the air
permeating the atmosphere
until it finds some other pair
some other king and queen
brought to whispering
at night when we lie together
our legs entwined
i will breathe across your ear
into your hair
this song of all I long to tell you

You're on your own with the melody and orchestration, etc. I'm afraid you may even have to do minor edits to the words or cadence but, hey, you're the artist! Play on!

A good song needs good lyrics to start with. This is challenging... no copyrights, are you sure?

Cup full of love. #ahhh#

I think today finds us both in a loving mood. . .

I wrote this song. So I've copyrighted it (according to the laws of the US -- sorry, but you asked). And, yes, I was definitely in a loving mood. If only the feeling alone brought a loved one near ... or in my case my future loved one.
