Lyrics by Monica Richards

lyrics

Here, thoughts cling airborne
To a sea of voice so glorious; mesmerizing
This is my body; this is my inner mind
What lies beneath my eyes
Discarded years of elemental faith
Beckoned to a watery embrace
With love upon his face
My appetite's unchanged
Sink into dream; these enchanted depths
The realm of muted wisdom
Slowly descend; trust ignites the darkness
And bliss is this drowning moment
Believe me I am sorry
To charm with bitter eyes; mesmerizing
Careless magic turns upon itself, washed down in ritual
The coin and prayer can't feed the wishing well
The silence glistens on my skin
The water urges charity
I crave a grander offering
My appetite's unchanged
Sink into dream; these enchanted depths
The realm of muted wisdom
Slowly descend; trust ignites the darkness
And bliss is this drowning moment
Here I remain
This is my body; this sea my inner mind
Find comfort in my arms
Winds beckon above the surface
Storms wane forsaken
My gaze is baptism; mesmerizing
Come to me
Greet me with open arms
Mesmerizing
