Mason Jennings Lyrics: My Perfect Lover

My Perfect Lover
from In The Ever

Where was I before you found me
Who was I and what had bound me
Where was love and understanding
Why was living so demanding
You were on the snow-capped mountains
You were in the deep blue ocean
Down below the wind and thunder
In a perfect world of wonder
You were calling, come back to me
How long has it been, my only
I was listening and I heard you
When I did, I finally found you

Everything you touch is living
This whole universe is giving
What was once inside you dreaming
Is now the life that you are leading
I was with you, baby, crying
I was there when you were dying
Underneath the sound and silence
In the gospel and in science

Come to me my perfect lover
We are one, there is no other
In every face I see you clearly
Oh my friend I love you dearly
