new tune lyrics – james taylor

its written in the surface of her skin
there’s been a baby within
given away in love
i see it in the little lines
around her eyes, across her brow
she’ll be driftin’ away from me now

see the shape of feeling that’s not quite there
inside her soul
love has gone away now, leaving behind an empty hole
who am i to try to compete
with again, as the silence so easily rushes in
i will fly away

it was something i only dreamed of
something that i’m not quite sure of
something that i’ll never tell you about

/ james taylor lyrics
