lyrics

If I could take down every inch of you in gold
Engrave it in the metal of my soul
And send it out to worlds beyond those known
To find a cosmic gramophone

No listener would ever understand
The lightning bolts between two grains of sand
Some people never witness shooting stars
Most never know a love like ours

And I didn't know
My heart was closed

Until you came to unlock it
Yeah, you found the perfect song
And I couldn't stop it
Not for anyone
So send it in a rocket
Yeah, to play after I'm gone
You're the plug that fits my socket
All the lights came on

If I could reach beyond the stars that we can see
To sing for them a song of you and me
No amount of any greatest hits
Could explain the way it fits

If I could bottle every beat my heart has missed
Or the trembling in my hands when we first kissed
How time and space and sense and circumstance
Were gone when we began to dance

And I didn't know
My heart was closed

Until you came to unlock it
Yeah, you found the perfect song
And I couldn't stop it
Not for anyone
So send it in a rocket
Yeah, to play after I'm gone
You're the plug that fits my socket
All the lights came on

You're the plug that fits my socket
And all my lights came on
