I remember the day

(Back to index of lyrics)

 

I remember the day,
the day we first met,
You came into my life,
like handfuls of diamonds.
I remember the day,
the day we first met,
You came into my life,
like an open door.

 

You were shards of pure light,
You didn’t recoil
as you looked in my eyes.

 

I remember the hunger,
as You moved towards me,
and I moved towards You,
I remember the thirst.
You saw where the thorns,
had grown under my skin,
with precision and care,
You excised the ghosts.
I remember the day.

 

You were sweetness and life,
So pure that I cried.
You banished the dark.

 

Love like no other before or since,
That lay down, in the dirt of my life,
and talked with me there,talked with me there,
and even found joy …
and diamonds worth dying for, I remember the day.
