LYRICS:
Like a breeze when you’re asleep
Or a promise you can’t keep
Is she.
Like December on the beach.
Always just beyond your reach
Is she.
You want to claim her all for your own,
But if you cling too hard,
You’ll find that you are left alone.
As elusive as a year,
All you want forever near
Is she.

Give her room.
Let her roam.
Make her feel safe but unconfined.
Let her know that you’re her home.
That’s how you love her.

Like a song with perfect rhymes
That you’ve sung a million times
Is she.
(And now that song’s your favorite.)
Ever changing like the tide,
Always ready for the ride
Is she.
She grabs your hand and charges ahead,
And if you stall, another man
Might win her heart instead.
But remember what she needs.
Like a rose amid the weeds
Is she.

Give her room.
Let her roam.
Make her feel safe but unconfined.
Let her know that you’re her home.
That’s how you love her.

Every helium balloon
Needs a string to keep it grounded.
Hold her with extra long arms,
And she will reach for a life
With love compounded.
You don’t have to match her pace.
Just be sure you’re in the race.

Like a whisper never heard,
Like a sixteen letter word
Is she.
As complex as any graph,
As enticing as a laugh
Is she.
She is impossible to contain,
And yet you need her
Just as the flowers need the rain.
All that madness will allow.
All you want forever, now.
Is she.
