4 years (lyrics)

4 years
(words & music Anneke van Giersbergen)

Would I lay my head beside you,
if I didn’t feel the way that I do?
For 4 years and a day
I wondered what you’d say,
if I saw you again

Would I caress you and die in your arms,
if I was capable of doing you harm?
For 4 years and a day
I wondered what you’d say,
if I saw you again

You beautiful creature, you smart man
I treasure the silky touch of your hands
For 4 years and a day
I wondered what you’d say,
if I saw you again
