V1:
Loose your lips and smile, my love,
Show me what’s within.
To harbour patterns never seen
Is sacred, not a sin.
Be proud of every perfect pearl
You keep beneath your skin.
Oh, loose your lips and smile, my love,
Show me what’s within.


V2:
Throw back your hair and dance, my love,
Share your radiance newly.
What the cynics call N.Q.P.s [“Not Quite Perfect“]
Are masterpieces truly,
More perfect by far than the factory lines
We’ve idolized unduly.
Oh, throw back your hair and dance, my love,
Share your radiance newly.


Bridge:
I won’t shrink from sentiment
Or shun archaic rhymes,
But I’ll compare your irises
To a peacock feather’s eye.
I’ll sing to every breath you breathe
And watch your belly rise and set till dawn.


V3:
So breathe a deep breath and sing, my love.
Hold up your shining brow
And celebrate beauty’s gift!
True humbleness won’t bow at all
To mortals, but look heavenward
As I look with you now –
Reaching for eternity,
Offering my vow.
