Right about now, one thing is certain
as kindness is flooding your face
you welcome me like an oasis
quite the oasis in this place
you with your copper-colored skin
sweet smell of wood-smoke in your hair
take one look at me
know that I am searching for a place to land...
I am a little lost and looking for a place to land.
I have to say it surprised me
having you read me that way
you told me I don't have to answer
don't have to insist I'm okay
you said, "just stay here for a while
stay beside me while I sleep, I need to sleep
don't worry what it means that you came here
looking for a place to land
I'm not afraid - there's lots of room here
use it for a place to land."
Sometimes the thoughts go unspoken
sometimes they try hard to hide
but I feel the pull of you on my life
like stars, like the moon and the tide
I know that you've been here before
hovering just above the trees
I hope you trust what's in my heart
so that I can offer you the same someday --
someday when I'm the one who's not afraid
and you're looking for a place to land.
Right about now, one wish is present
as I imagine your face
whatever becomes of this alliance
may it always be filled with such grace
you with your oh-so-open arms, me with my tenacity
I thank the clouds, the gods, the breeze
my compass that guides me through confusing days
turned my hand down that gravel driveway
looking for a place to land.
Turned my hand down your gravel driveway
when I was looking for a place to land.
