Turtle Dove

 I've been down 
This road before
Far too many times
With a tiny frown, 
But what for?
I've been alone 
For many years 
Far too many times, 
Sheltered by tears

I'm under you now
I love you somehow
Grieve not, my turtle dove
You're the one that I love
Weep not, my sweetheart
Our ship of joy won't part
I recollect myself 
You remember 
Believing in yourself 
Last December
Grieve not, my turtle dove
You're the one that I love
Weep not, my sweetheart
Our ship of joy won't part
I hate the insanity inside
I'm above you on this ride
Towards inner paradise…
Open up our dismal eyes…
My turtle dove, 
Flying up above…

Drive away the pain 
From my weary, 
Strong shoulders…
Overcome the lows and highs
My throat is strained
Let's wait for the sun
Forget the aches of yesterday
Far from you again 
Arriving early
Watched the shimmering sunrise 
Behind the boulders 
My coat is rained upon 
By teardrops of lonely dismay

I'm under you now
I love you somehow
Grieve not, my turtle dove
You're the one that I love
I recollect myself 
You remember 
Believing in yourself 
Last December
Fly high 
In the aqua-blue sky
Don't be shy
Soar with wings so fly 
I hate the insanity inside
I'm above you on this ride
Towards inner paradise…
Open up our dismal eyes,
My dearest, lovely friend
From beginning to end 

Staring at the window 
On my own 
Once again
Strangest feelings
Enter inside me
Dealing with stress
Let it all go
Just do so
With you
By my side
Without you,
I hide…
I would try not to cry
I wouldn't know why

I'm under you now
I love you somehow
Grieve not, my turtle dove
You're the one that I love
I recollect myself 
You remember 
Believing in yourself 
Last December
I hate the insanity inside
I'm above you on this ride
Towards inner paradise…
Open up our dismal eyes…

Walking on the street 
You haven't defeated me
Holler at me 
When you are around
Lost and found
Bring me high above
The cold ground,
My sweet turtle dove
Sober up and mend my scar
Reply to my cries
Say goodbye to lies
Under cover 
In your covers
In your covers
In your covers of love,
My turtle dove from above

I'm under you now
I love you somehow
Grieve not, my turtle dove
You're the one that I love
I recollect myself 
You remember 
Believing in yourself 
Last December
I hate the insanity inside
I'm above you on this ride
Towards inner paradise…
Open up our dismal eyes…

We are together in this
Through our lows and highs
We share chaos and bliss
With all of our mightiest tries

You and I belong 
Together I believe
You and I long
To laugh and relieve
The shameful sorrow 
There's a tomorrow
Behind yesterdays
Of too many grays
Of many sorts of miseries…
Replace them with daisies,
My turtle dove…
My darling love…
My turtle dove…
My darling love...
