about

Ten Thousand Things © Steven Beck 2010

The first thing I remember was when I saw your face
until that moment my heart was a dark and empty place
No sun, no moon, no stars to shine.
They call it living, but I was just barely alive,
Until I looked into your eyes

The next thing I remember, is that I began to breathe,
Inhaling the essence of the beauty I'd just seen.
Couldn't tell if I was breathing you,
Or if you were doing it to me.
I saw your face then I began to breathe.

Next thing I came to you;
You met me half way, came to me too
Now I'm trying to count all the joys that it brings;
one two three ... ten thousand things

Now nothing comes from nothing, at least that's what they say
Something grows into something more, seems to be the way.
Some give you salt for salt, I'll give you sweet for sweet.
Cold begets cold. Heat fuels hungry heat.
I saw your face, then I began to breathe.

Next thing, I came to you;
You met me half way, came to me too
Now I'm trying to count all the joys that it brings
one two three ... ten thousand things.
No I just can't count all the joys that it brings;
one two three ... ten thousand things.
