There is a second of consciousness that is clean again. A second that is you, without memory or experience, the animal warm and waking into a brand new world. There is the sun dissolving the dark, and light as clear as music, filling the room where you sleep and the other rooms behind your eyes. How do you expect me to choose? When what I love the most about you — is you.

He didn't move back. Something he fought to control. With my eyes closed, I could easily picture the other side of the century. The way your lower lip stuck out when you were working out a problem in your head. And how you flick your ring finger with your thumb when you get impatient. They flowed.
And it's showing now. Finally he leaned back, a stunned expression on his face. You are the reason I have a mouth, a heart. It is the one true and perfect symbol of the universe.
Lyrics / Chris Norman - Official Site
And it is the one most accurate symbol of you. Spread your arms in an embrace, throw your head back, and prepare to receive and send coordinates of being. For, at last you know —you are the navigator, the captain, and the ship. How they have always been for me the command to obey, the inviolable and beautiful commandment. No, no, I'm not telling lies.
