Within These Walls

I’ve been thinking about you
so beautiful and lovely
I wish you could see it all the way I do
so pure and true

I’ve seen you in the sun
shining warm upon your skin
young feet wandering in the harbor there
and every summer since

your song is alive
it’s filling all the empty
eternity within these walls
within your precious heart

the days can be cruel
I know the hours take a toll
I know it’s hard to open up the doors
and let me see inside

but the dark is alright
I’m not bothered by the quiet
and a secret is a welcome thing
my arms are open wide
