Ribbon Road lyrics


Love21

it's too beautiful for this world
too beautiful a girl
and all the while I'm holding back the tears
I know this isn't new, 'cos I've seen it all in you
working through the Sundays and the years

it's too bright a light to shine
but it's always been inside
too much, too big, too brave to be excused
even whispering the words lets it out
you just get hurt
they prove you wrong, you don't belong you just get used

chorus
it's the best-kept secret that I know of
love just has to grow
and even through the darkest hour
I just have to move towards it
don't let go, you've got to know
love
it's too wonderful to miss
so I'm blowing you this kiss you must believe that truth wi
ll set you free
I can see it in your eyes, you were born with wings to fly
in the open air, don't linger there
just keep on moving

it's too foolish to be wise
in this atmosphere of lies
it's hard to know how yesterday was done
but it's good to be alive
even though my throat is dry
and it's been too long since I was strong for you

it makes my heart beat, it moves the blood
it gives me reason, it does me good
and in the quiet I hear the voice
couldn't fight it, I have no choice

but it's too beautiful for this world
too beautiful a girl
and all the while I'm holding back the tears
it's the best I have to give
to help you through, to let you live
I wish the world was kinder and that love was not so blind

chorus
it's the best-kept secret that I know of
love just has to grow
and even through the darkest hour
I just have to move towards it
don't let go, you've got to know
love
