Falling in Love

And right now I'm the only girl living

In this silent, sleeping city

Because I've tasted the bittersweet

Of your rosy tenderness

And I've felt the exhilaration of flight

Just after the birds have gone to bed


Awake, I am, and soaring through the sky

Along the tangle of dawn's golden hair

Because the thought of sleep

Has become lost in the willows

And it seems weight, too, has disappeared

Now that I know of your love
