Between the whispers and the sighs

Between the whispers and the sighs

The sweet taste of champagne,
still lingers on her lips
The fragrance of jasmine oil,
slides from her fingertips

I know that I'm ready for,
whatever she has in mind
There's a warmth taking over me,
that's moving deep inside

A mystic instigation,
of skin against skin
In breathless anticipation,
for loving to begin

Outside is the darkness,
of a cold winters night
Inside there's a passion,
burning by firelight

Chorus
Between the whispers and the sighs
I can read between the lines,
I'm following your signs,
Between the whispers and the sighs
I sense our love is right on track,
and there's no going back

Outside snow is falling,
no leaves left on the trees
but inside there's a heat that
brings me to my knees

Trapped inside the vertigo,
as lovers rise and fall
Isn't dizzy desire the answer,
whenever romance calls?

Chorus
Between the whispers and the sighs
I can read between the lines,
I'm following your signs,
Between the whispers and the sighs
I sense our love is right on track,
and there's no going back

There's a solemn silence,
no whispering of words
After love's expression,
only heartbeats are heard

I've never ever, felt this way,
for anyone else before
I hear eternity calling us,
as we open up love's door

Chorus
Between the whispers and the sighs
I can read between the lines,
I'm following your signs,
Between the whispers and the sighs
I sense our love is right on track,
and there's no going back


The sweet taste of champagne...
still... 
lingers...
on...
her...
lips.

perhaps one day I will get the hang of lyrics, freestyle flows best from my thoughts although i attempt forms at times~! I once attempted lyrics in a contest on here...Craig hosted it, can't even remember if it placed but it took me forever to write!
