Possession

Possession

Sarah McLachlan

Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time

The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard

I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Through this world I've stumbled
So many times betrayed,
Trying to find an honest word,
To find the truth enslaved,

Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath,
Your words keep me alive,

And I would be the one
To hold you down,
Kiss you so hard,
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears,
Just close your eyes dear

Into this night I wander,
It's morning that I dread,
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread,

Oh into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride,
Nothing stands between us here
And I won't be denied,

And I would be the one
To hold you down,
Kiss you so hard,

I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears,
Just close your eyes dear...
