music and lyrics by Paul Willson


If you hold your breath now if you make believe
That closing your eyes will save you from what you see
That the monsters under your bed will leave you be

And If you want to know
yet you shy from the mirror
What makes you expect a vision that's clear
And how could you be
surprised when you see
that a stranger is here

I wanted to love more patiently
I'm sorry, forgive me

You are exactly as you should be
And you're beautiful to me

But words can be golden and talk still be cheap
If we say we're awake
When we're really asleep
In shadows and shallows
yet claiming the light and the deep

I've got to be honest
Not just rose and kiss
Unless it is total
it's not really bliss
I can't put my soul in
Unless it is whole and
I'm sure of this

I want to love completely
That only can be
If we fully see

We are exactly as we should be but we are not yet free


from Mike's Attic Sessions, released June 9, 2015
