Bleeding Earth - Proposal



"I wrote it when I was thirteen years old..."

Lyrics to Proposal:

For what can say to you?
A question trembles on my lips
But never falls to thy ground
In your presence
When thou drawest near
My mind shuts down
My hands tremble
I think not and breath not
I only love
How strange it be that words
Stand on thy brink of that divide
How can it be that one word
Holds thy power of my life or death
One word from exhilaration to defeat
It trembles on my lips
It slows in my mind
It thickens thy air with and unseen tension
I open my mouth
It hangs there
Like a water drop on a plant
Then slow as honey,
It falls out
"Yes"
