Half the perfect world Lyrics

Half the perfect world by Madeleine Peyroux  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Half the perfect world Every night he'd come to me
I'd cook for him, I'd pour his tea
I was in my thirties then
I'd made some money, lived with men

We'd lay us down to give and get
Beneath the white mosquito net
And since no counting had begun
We lived a thousand years in one

The candles burned
The moon went down
The polished hill
The milky town
Transparent, weightless, luminous
Uncovering the two of us
On that fundamental ground
Where love's unwilled, unleashed,
And half the perfect world is foundMadeleine Peyroux Lyrics Index
