lyrics

Nuances
I love you in the nuances
In tinges and traces
And minute details
Tenderness
The subtle shades of tenderness
Grand romantic gestures
On a lesser scale

I’m not one for emotional displays
I hold the deepest feelings
But I show them in small ways
A touch on the arm
The curve of a smile
The brushing of bodies
The faint self-denial

I’m not one for emotional displays
I hold the deepest feelings
But I show them in small ways
An economy of sentiment
When the brain controls the heart
But don’t think me a robot
Just because I’m smart

Enough to shield what I adore
Enough to doubt what’s never worked before
And smart enough to readily attest
When head and heart compete
The brain knows best.
