dear true love lyrics – sleeping at last

“dear true love”

dear true love,
i’m a writer without any words,
i’m a story that n*body heard
when i’m without you.

i am a voice,
i am a voice without any sound.
i’m a treasure map that n*body found
when i’m without you.

dear true love,
i’m a lantern without any light,
i’m a boxer much too afraid to fight
when i’m without you.

so with this ring
may you always know one thing:
what little that i have to give,
i will give it all to you.
you’re my one true love.

i am a memory,
i’m a memory bent out of shape,
a childhood already bruised with age
when i’m without you.

dear true love,
i’m an artist without any paint,
i’m the deal that everyone breaks
when i’m without you.

so with this ring,
may you always know one thing:
what little that i have to give,
i will give it all to you.

you’re my one true love.

i am a whisper,
i’m a secret that n*body keeps.
i’m a dreamer of someone else’s dreams
when i’m without you.

dear true love,
i’m a farewell that came all too soon.
i’m a hand-me-down that dreams of being new
when i’m without you.
