Paul Bodden: Music & Lyrics

Blue Veil of Tears

(PAUL BODDEN, vocals; SETH WEINSTEIN, piano)
Words & music by Paul Bodden; Arrangement by Bodden & Weinstein
1.
A BLUE VEIL OF TEARS
Across the caverns of my eyes,
A hungry ache to hold my fears
And take them dancing to the skies,
In a blue veil of tears
In the blue, blue veil that appears
When I am here with you,
Being here with you.

2.
A bright cloud of rain
Across the canyons of my heart,
A sweet cascade to ease the pain
And let it joyfully depart,
In a bright cloud of showers
In a bright, white cloud that just flowers
When I am here with you,
Being here with you.

What joy is this
Tumblin' headlong into bliss.
Soft touch, gentle kiss,
Here is love I cannot miss.

3.
A black shining fire
Across the chasm of my soul,
Burning darkly in the dark,
Burning way beyond control,
Just a black shining fire
Just a black, black fire that grows higher
When I am here with you,
Being here with you.

What joy is this
Tumblin' headlong into bliss.
Soft touch, burning kiss,
Here is love I cannot miss.

(CODA)

A BLUE VEIL OF TEARS,
A bright cloud of rain,
A black, black fire,
Eyes, heart, soul,
When I am here with you
Being here with you
When I am being here with you.
