Spanish Eyes

Intimate, holding her close
Feel the warmth of her skin
Pale grey morning light through the curtains
Hear her song as she breathes

Captivated, I
By this girl
This girl with the Spanish eyes...

Whirling half dreams, I doze
Unsure if I have spoken
To answer her questions
Imploring, smiles, a face sensuous
Feel her body next to mine

Captivated, I
By this girl
This girl with the Spanish eyes...

Long moments of longing
No sense of belonging
Cosmic fusion beneath the stars
A kiss exchanged, hand holding
While fireworks burst under the dark domed sky
I do not know the reason why

Captivated, I
By this girl
This girl with the Spanish eyes...

Make this go on forever, I pray
Forever, forever and a day
I'm in too deep to turn around
Turn and run away
Haunted in my sleep by visions of her
Divine beauty
Where the images flicker and change
And avoid close scrutiny
But if we are all one and from the same dream have come
Are these fancy words in vain, dancing all alone?
If our universe is but one dew drop on the edge of a celestial blade of grass
Waiting to explode to nothing, as all things that come to pass
If every whisper from your lips turned out to be only lies...
Why do I still wait and watch, captivated, I...

...for the girl with the Spanish eyes?
