THE SPACE

 

There's a spark of something natural
in everything you say
There's a kind of misdirection
in the way you play the game

If only you and I could
really open up
We would learn what's worth
knowing about each other
There's a shaft of truth shining through
the space between our eyes

The space between our eyes
Holds a thousand understandings
The space between our eyes
getting smaller all the time
The space carries but a
single sound, from I to
eye to ear

The space is nothing special
but it's there because we're here
