I said, I meant

I said I was in love with the moment
The perfect lighting, easy smile

But what I really meant was
I fell in love
With the glow on your cheeks
And the shape of your lips

I said I was in love with the moment
The sun’s warmth, reflection off the snow

But what I really meant was
I fell in love
With the warmth of your body
And the gold in your eye

I said I was in love with the moment
The expanse of the woods, the little house

But what I really meant was
I fell in love
With the possibilities and the reality

I said I was in love with the moment
But what I really meant was

I fell in love

With you.
