Blaze

I love her as I love you.
I love you as I love her.
Seems to be a sacred simile,
My sweetest lover and my Lover/Creator.

Chorus:
It makes me realize all the ways that you blaze in my heart.
Makes me realize all the ways that you blaze.
It makes me realize all the ways that you blaze in my heart.
Makes me realize all the ways that you blaze.

Beneath your burning and circling sun,
I have greeted so many-a-morning.
It seemed so just like any other
The day she destroyed me without any warning.

repeat chorus

Shining on the falling of sparrows.
Chasing down every shadow.
Burning me down to such a state of undress,
I confess everything I don’t know.

repeat chorus

My heart was once out in the Arctic
Inside an abandoned, old refrigerator.
She took it and said, “Get on outa your head.
There ain’t no saving any of it for later.”

repeat chorus

 

“Blaze” appears on Nashville Dandelion and Pure Marques (A Songwriter’s Demo).
