Sophie

V1
For every piece that I slice off and give to another
My heart grows ten fold
Why then should there be so many conditions
on how the cake be cut and shared out?

PRE
She said "The biggest slice goes to my friends and my wife
The crumbs are left to lonely strangers"
I said "Is it that we ration our love
Carefully incase we should run out?"

Chorus:
I bring to you a thousand pieces
I bring you a shape with a thousand corners
To the loveless stranger I bring that which I being to you
There is always enough
There is always enough

V2
So every time we pass, with blinkers on, a bright light shadowed
And couldn't see it glowing until now
Now your floating with me on this landscape of lyrics
A raft of words expands to hold us all

PRE 2
She said "The safest space goes to the friends in my life
Then room is made for lonely strangers"
I said "Never thought to ration our love
Carefully incase we should run out"

Chorus

PRE 3
She said "The biggest slice goes to the friends in my life
The crumbs are left to lonely strangers"
I said "If we're going to ration our love
Is is such a shock that we run out?"
