While We Contemplate This

*While We Contemplate This from Gaynor Perry on Vimeo.

It's not about you, it's not about me either
It's not about the birds in the sky or how deep is the river
& while we contemplate this why don't we kiss

You look me up, you look me down
& I can feel the way you talk to me, it's a beautiful sound
& as the story still unfolds, I hold your hand in the dark & wonder
Could our lust turn to love

It's not about you, it's not about me either
It's not about the birds in the sky or how deep is the river
& while we contemplate this why don't we kiss

You reel me in with your longing stare
What's underneath - the logic's bare, is there a heart in there to feed
& although your hands can do a little dance all through the show
It's not romance, as such, it doesn't go that deep


Another verse, another man to muse upon
& it's not long before you're under my skin
I caught a glimpse of something more inside the heart
The mind, the soul of you - it's burning from within

In your stream of thoughts I’m free
A figurine amongst the debris
Look at us in the battle dust
Our little hearts are just caught up
And in your flow of words I fall
I made a veil with them, that’s all
I slip away in your refrain
This tenderness caught in a flame


It's not about you, it's not about me either
It's not about the birds in the sky or how deep is the river
& while we contemplate this why don't we kiss
