Whenever I taste
honey from your lips,
it’s a moment of purpose
only you can give.

Whatever I hear,
whatever I may see,
whatever my cause, dear,
I know you believe.

‘Cause you’re beautiful my love,
when I close my eyes.
And you’re beautiful my love,
under heaven’s skies.

If ever you think
careless is the night,
I’ll comfort you with silence
till the morning light.
Wherever you turn,
wherever you may roam,
wherever you conquer,
I’ll always be your home.

‘Cause you’re beautiful my love,
when I close my eyes.
Yeah, you’re beautiful my love,
under heaven’s skies.

And you fly me
through your skies
of harmony.
And you lay me down
with words of honesty.

Yeah, you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, yeah,
here with me.
You’re beautiful, my love
when I close my eyes.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love
under heaven’s skies.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.

Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love.
Yeah, you’re beautiful, my love
under heaven’s skies.

Staring Down

Loosen from my pride
Oh, that monster
he kept me so tight.

I threw my aces down
just to face
the here and the now.
So, here I go again.
I want to please.
Yeah, here I go again.
Sweet I sleep,
sweeter my dream.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been looking.
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been searching
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down…
and your love is what I found.

As cautious as a thief
oh, but restless
for all of my needs.
Now, I stumble for
all I want
and all that I adore.

So, here I go again.
I need to please.
Yeah, here I go again.
Sweet you sleep,
sweeter my dream.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been looking.
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been searching
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down
and your love is what I….

Long days, long nights,
just blinded by what was
already inside.
Now, I’ve found,
I’ve found my way home.
Yeah, I’ve found my way home.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been looking.
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down.

(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been searching

I’ve been searching
(ooo ooo ooo)
I’ve been staring down

And your love is what I found
