    Lyrics

    Just about the time the shadows call
    I undress my mind and dare you to follow
    Paint a portrait of my mystery
    Only close my eyes and you are here with me
    A nameless face to think I see
    And sit and watch the waves with me 'til they're gone
    A heart I'd swear I'd recognize is
    Made out of my own devices
    Could I be wrong?

    The time that I've taken
    I pray is not wasted
    Have I already tasted my piece of
    One sweet love?

    Sleepless nights, you creep inside of me
    Paint your shadows on the breath that we share
    You take more than just my sanity
    You take my reason not to care
    No ordinary wings I'll need
    The sky itself will carry me back to you
    The things I dream that I can do
    I'd open up the moon for you
    Just come down soon

    Time that I've taken
    I pray is not wasted
    Have I already tasted my piece of
    One sweet love?
    Ready and waiting
    For a heart worth the breaking
    I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
    One sweet love

    Savor the sorrow to soften the pain
    Sip on the southern rain as I do
    I don't look, don't touch, don't do anything
    But hope that there is a you

    The earth that is the space between
    I'd banish it from under me to get to you
    Your unexpected love provides
    My solitary suicide
    Oh, I wish I knew

    Time that I've taken
    I pray is not wasted
    Have I already tasted my piece of
    One sweet love?
    Ready and waiting
    For a heart worth the breaking
    I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
    One sweet love
    One sweet love

      She's so new I can't believe no one posted on this song. The lyrics are better than that of Love Song's...
