like a lover

I found myself listening to a Sergio Mendez and Brazil 66 song I fell in love with a long time ago. It’s entitled “Like a Lover” and everytime I hear that song it makes me fall in love all over again. The emotions I feel when I hear the song are so strong that I feel like there is so much love inside me, all bottled up, that I want to share with someone special. J

Like a lover the morning sun
Slowly rises and kisses you awake
Your smile is soft and drowsy as you let it play
Upon your face
Oh how I dream I might be like the morning sun to you

Like a lover the river wind
Sighs and ripples its fingers through your hair
Upon your cheeks it lingers
Never having known a sweeter place
Oh how I dream I might be like the river wind to you

How I envy a cup that knows your lips
Let it be me my love
Or the table that feels your fingertips
Let it be me
Let me be your love
Bring an end to the endless days and nights
Without you

Like a lover the velvet moon
Shares your pillow and watches while you sleep
Its light arrives on tiptoe, gently taking you
In its embrace
Oh how I dream I might be like the velvet moon to you
