To Discover More About You



We sat on the park bench admiring the azaleas
 You like them wild and free, the same as camellias
 And we spoke of these things under the scent of gardenias
 And the mood was just right to discover more about you

 Then you laid down before me, naked and bare
 I just stared in your eyes; you're most naked in there
 I was lost in your curves and in your tangled hair
 And the mood was just right to discover more about you

 You gave me your hand, and I'm wearing your ring
 You gave me this day; watching the children playing
 You are the warmth that gives life it's meaning
 And the mood is just right to discover more about you

 Then you took out your paints and you made up your mind
 You'd paint a beautiful picture and in it you'd find
 All the dreams that have left you, a rebirth of some kind
 And the mood was just right to discover more about you

 Now I look through old photos and old recipes
 There on the park bench, near the flowers and trees
 You're carried in the gardenias sweet pleasentrys
 And the mood is just right to discover more about you

 And you said that your life here was just as a guest
 I remember how you smiled when you drew your last breath
 Stepping into the light, I know was never your death
 For the mood is just right to discover more about you
