Your beautiful life

I watched you walk away
With a cheery wave of your hand
And all the lights went out on my runway
And my plane it couldn’t land

I found a petal on my pillow
I think it fell from your sky
You once accepted me, my darling
Into your beautiful life

Always or never?
Apart or together?
Both things or neither?
I don’t have an answer

I just trust in your beautiful life
In your beautiful, in your beautiful
In your beautiful, in your beautiful life

Is this love too much or not enough?
Returned goods or the Holy Dove?
I can also feel unworthy
But you’re the one I’m always thinking of

You took a match to some feelings
And then you watched as the whole thing burnt down
But in the sky I saw Pallas Athena
Beauty to be, but a warrior now

Warcraft or wisdom?
Pardon or prison?
The gifts that God sends you
Would that I could still attend you

But I trust in your beautiful life
In your beautiful, in your beautiful
In your beautiful, in your beautiful life

You showed me your childhood
And you showed me your pain
You told me your secrets
Yes you tried to explain

You showed me your altar
And you gave me a key
You don’t have to worry
Your secrets are safe with me
In your beautiful life
In your beautiful life

Karma or blunder?
Wasteland or wonder?
Demolition or patience?
There are twelve explanations

Goodbye, hello, goodnight, good luck, good grief
Just keep the faith and follow your star
Don’t lose touch with your beautiful life, honey
You know I love you for who you are

I know my task and I’m getting to it
I keep a candle in my heart
I had to find God just to find you
Who you are, who you are, who you are

Wounding or healing?
Kissing or killing?
Baptised or drowning?
A broken cup filling

But you’re home in your beautiful life
in your beautiful, in your beautiful
in your beautiful, in your beautiful
in your beautiful life

Thunderheart, Your beautiful life
