Brand New Lover (Dallman Christopher)

In the bathroom I comb my face with water Check my reflection, say, 'what did you expect?' Most days I seem to be loose wires that dangle Never seem to connect Back a ways I lost my sense of a straight line Lost my sense of time as it falls In the middle of the night In the middle of the night I was woken by a light From you Every day is a brand new lover A body I've never been I fumble under covers With a stranger's shape and skin Sometimes light cuts the grey And my fear falls away This is my every day Now we hold ourselves so tight to each other We lose the words, breathe out, breathe in In the middle of the night In the middle of the night I can read the words you write On my skin Every day is a brand new lover A body I've never been I fumble under covers With a stranger's shape and skin Sometimes light cuts the grey And my fear falls away This is my every day In the bathroom I comb my faith with water This is not what I've come to expect Most days I seem to be loose wires that dangle But with you I connect
