The Face Within

(Words and music by and © Talis Kimberley, 1991)

Patterns in the candlelight cast shadows on my skin
The brightness of the light without conceals a light within
Nothing in my hands, as you can see – they wait to hold you
Something more than life is inside me – you know I told you

Truth can take us so far, beyond that we go by trust
Are you as scared as I am at what’s happening to us
It’s hard on you, but sometimes I just have to run and hide
But it’s your arms I’ll run back to, and your face I wear inside

Where the inner portraits hang, hold space for one more frame
In dreams when you cried out for me, you’ll call another name
Something of us both and something more – it’s set in motion
Pictures on our hearts behind closed door – so much emotion

Truth can take us so far, beyond that we go by trust
Are you as scared as I am at what’s happening to us
It’s hard on you, but sometimes I just have to run and hide
But it’s your arms I’ll run back to, and your face I wear inside

Pattern through the windowpane cast colours on my skin
The face I wear without smiles at the face I wear within
Someone I shall know, but never be again as close as this now
Everything to hope for, everything to learn, close and wish now
Sometimes I get scared, and then I have to run, don’t mean to leave you
This is just so strange, it’s difficult to learn, but I believe you.
