You Are - Song Lyrics

You Are - Copyright 2008 Charles Sjolander



You Are

Written 1987

Verse 1:
the sound as I awake
and the dream that I just had
a ripple on the lake
a song that makes me glad
a gentle morning breeze
through a window left ajar
daybreak through the trees
all these things you are

Refrain:
you are my yawn and stretch at dawn
you are the love that's never gone
you are the fantasy become real
you are all I hear and see and feel

Verse 2:
this moment which I hold
forever on a page
lives that I've foretold
from another age
sunlight on my skin
a blessing from our nearest star
the growth which I begin
all these things you are

Refrain.

Verse 3:
colors I can't explain
as darkness is set free
the stars which still remain
the whispering of a tree
shadows from the moon
night seems near then far
crickets sing their tune
all these things you are

Refrain.
