lyrics

I take you in like I take in
A mountain view or the ocean
I stand enthralled, arms open wide
But I’ve learned not to try and close them

I see the view, I take the view
But then I let it go
For it’s much too grand and much too wild
To try and hold for too long

This is how I take you in
You’re midnight and your morning
Your closeness and your distances
Your coming and your going

Your forcefulness, your gentleness
The part of you that knows no shame
The child in you, your ancient
Your laughter and your pain

I take you in like a take in
A full moon or a star
Enchanted by the vision
But knowing it can’t be owned
This is how I take you in
And this is how I let you go

I see the view, I take the view
But then I let it go
For it’s much too grand and much too wild
To try and hold for too long
