Pearl

PEARL - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Could you love me just as I am?
Not as a mortal
Not as Superman
Could you just enjoy being with me?
And not with the fashion
And not just the money

All I ever wanted was to be your friend
In all of my troubled times 
Just to hold your hand 
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

I don't do the things I do to impress your eyes
Who I am comes naturally 
Why do you look so surprised?

All I thought I could find in you was something I lost long ago
Everything I ever forgotten was something I didn't want to know
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

You are the girl 
A priceless pearl
Not fools gold as some have claimed
The prettiest eyes 
That dance in the night
Of all of my fantasies
You are my world
Not a diamond, but a pearl
A pirate's fateful dream 

I don't do the things I do to impress your eyes
Who I am comes naturally 
Why do you look so surprised?

All I ever wanted was to be your friend
In all of my troubled times 
Just to hold your hand 
Open up your arms and feel the wind in your face
Feel the touch of my skin
Take a look at this place
A castle is what I live in
Here I am the king
To live without your love
Everything means nothing to me 

And nothing means everything to me
