Two Lifelines

Verse 1
Love made lines on our hands
Laughter made lines on our faces
Maps of emotions on the skin
Your back lined with your past

Verse 2
You have never seen your tattoos
I trace them for you with fingertips
So you can have them back
Again

Chorus 1
Two lifelines once entwined
Can only unravel with new links in the chain
And they will never be the same
And I will never be the same again.

Verse 3
Read your skin with fingertips
Awakening your surfaces
Coming to know you inside out
Boundaries of your soul defined

Verse 4
Perhaps I can wait before you trace
The lifeline of my spine
Because while I discovered your body
You held my gaze

Chorus 2
Two lifelines once entwined
Can only unravel with new kinks in the chain
And they will never be the same
And I will never be the same again.
