Nothing compares, Nothing

The way you
       Hold me close
       So tight, so real
       I never want to breathe again
       Look into my eyes
       With a gaze so deep
       Right to the bottom of my soul
       Speak words of sweet nothings
       All the careless whispers
       That mean so, so much
       Ignite my passion
       Caress my skin and heat it up
       Touch my lips and fireworks explode
       Feel so right, here, next to me
       Every curve and every plane
       Each line a perfect fit.
Oh why, please tell me,
       Why do you vanish
       Like a mirage
       When I open my eyes
       Why do you depart
       With the birdsong
       In the grey morning light
       Why do you leave me
       With nothing but cold arms
       And the warm scent of you?
       Why do you disappear
       Like smoke
       Like a phantom
       Like a magician’s trick
       Gone wrong
       Like a Roman candle
       Like a shooting star
       Like a penny
       Down a wishing well?
Why does nothing compare to you?
       Oh, please don’t leave again
       Hold on to me and
       I’ll hold on to you
       Together we run away
       Where we can be
       Just you and me.
Because
       You are the one
       You and me
       That’s what was meant to be
       Growing old together
       With love still hot and tender
       Holding on to the last breath
       Clinging to that final day
       When we leave this world together.

Nothing compares, Nothing

Artist's Description

Inspired by the man who visits me only in my dreams and who has done so since I was a girl and who is now growing old with me…
(I wonder who he is? Maybe he lives in a parallel universe and can only reach me in my dreams? LOL)

… and by the song
Nothing compares to you:


MCN: CRGS6-8U2H5-ADXYD
