Garden State

(wait it out, or go without)  

I donít have to talk about it, see it for what it is, dance around it, worry about it, be sick about it, be sure of it, put it under a pillow, put it under a tree, follow it around, promise it the moon, give it room or wait it out.  

I just walk thru it in wonder like Moses, swing from it, wear it on a sleeve, wear it like a shoe, tell it the truth.  

Cause thatís love, itís big, love. Breathe it in, give it skin, say it out loud, color it in, itís big. Bigger than the both of us.  

I donít have to make it up, throw it away, give it a shove, sabotage it, give it space, wrap it around, laugh about it, cry about it, stuff a sock in it, stuff it in a box in the back of the closet shelf, write it down, dump it down the drain or go without it.  

I just swim thru it, sing †it in a song, fly it like a kite, beat it like a drum, give it culture and let it burn.  

Cause thatís love, itís big, love. Breathe it in, give it skin, say it out loud, color it in, itís big. Bigger than the both of us.  

Release it like an exhale  
Inhale it like a whale and blow it out the top, give it pressure, get it high  
Let it form a puddle  
Give it more  
Give it all  
Put it on a sandwich  
Feed it to the rain  
Send it roses  
Just slide it between the sheets and slither, then listen to it  
Smell it like a flower  
Give it more  
Give it all  

Cause thatís love, itís big, love. Breathe it in, give it skin, say it out loud, color it in, itís big. Bigger than the both of us.  

Breathe it in, give it skin, say it out loud, color it it in, it's big.
