Comes To Your Love (I'm Depending On It)

So I wrote a song on the way back from Confusion. As is not unusual in such a case, the chords and melody are still shaking down as they converge with each other. The lyrics, on the other hand, are relatively stable -- and since that's all that you can see here.

daisy_knotwise and I had a complex relationship long before we were married. And sometimes it's still worth writing a song some twenty five years later. Even if there's no actual sci-fi or fantasy content... :)

Comes To Your Love (I’m Depending On It)

I thought that I had something to say,
But the words have all gone away.
I thought I had a message to send,
But I’m wasting the time that I’m spending on it.
If I had a chance to revise,
I could tell you what I see in your eyes
And maybe you would understand then
When it comes to your love, I’m depending on it.

You are the answer to the question I can’t ask.
You are the mystery locked up inside the mask.
And though your history might tell you it’s a sin,
I’m standing at your door and waiting to come in.

It took me far too long to learn to understand
The meaning lost inside the ring upon your hand.
And if we’re leaning toward a move that we would make,
I need to understand just how the vow would break.

And if you tell me that it’s true,
I only need to know that you believe it too.

You are the answer to the question I must ask.
There’s so much history locked up inside your mask.
There’s just one mystery that’s left for me and you.
I’m standing at your door – just tell me to come through.

(Final chorus)
Come to your love, I’m depending on it.
Come to your love, I’m depending on it.
