Love Itself Lyrics

The light came through the window

Straight from the sun above

And so inside my little room

There plunged the rays of love

In streams of light I clearly saw

The dust you seldom see

Out of which the nameless makes

A name for one like me

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then love itself

Love itself was gone

All busy in the sunlight

The flecks did float and dance

And I was tumbled up with them

In formless circumstance

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then love itself

Love itself was gone

 

Then I came back from where I’d been

My room it looked the same –

But there was nothing left between

The nameless and the name

All busy in the sunlight

The flecks did float and dance

And I was tumbled up with them

In formless circumstance

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then love itself

Love itself was gone

 

Love itself was gone
