Under The Falling Sky Lyrics

by Bonnie Raitt

Warm and lovely mystery, fire smiling through
Before this moment fades away I want to know you
I've got lightening in my pocket, thunder in my shoe
Have no fear I've got something here I want to show you

Low, under the falling sky
Easily we will lie
While I bring it to you

It's a low road, a high wire going from me to you
And in your eyes the distance left is closing
I've got a feeling in my oceans, blood underneath my skin
That into your bright fields this prison is opening, yeah

Our shadows wake each day, though they don't know why
They hope and try, live and die
So leave them in their frozen world, come and be my lover
If only for one stolen moment, we will live forever

Warm and lovely mystery, can you hear the choir?
But voices can no longer hold my desire
Just abandon your sad history and meet me in the fire
Angels wait to take me higher and higher, higher and higher
Higher and higher, higher and higher
