​Not Given Lightly

This song is by Boh Runga and appears on the compilation Stroke: Songs for Chris Knox (2009).

Hello my friend, it's morning, time to wake now
Your body and mine entwined will have to break now
I want your flesh, your warmth to stay beside me
Oh, how I wish you could be deep inside me

Show me your eyes, your love most tender feeling
And I'll give you mine, be truthful and revealing

'Cause it's you that I love and it's true that I love
It's love not given lightly
And I knew this was love and it's you that I love
And it's more than what it might be

When we're alone, I cannot always face you
Maybe my mood won't let these arms embrace you
But that doesn't mean my love's somehow diminished
Give me the time to show our love's unfinished

'Cause it's you that I love and it's true that I love
And it's love not given lightly
But I knew this was love and it's you that I love
And it's more than what it might be

'Cause it's you that I love
Yes, it's you that I love

And every word I sing for you
And everywhere I sing, it's true

It's you that I love and it's true that I love
It's you not given lightly
I knew this was love, it's you that I love
It's more than what it might be

Your body and mine, entwined will have to break now
But hello my friend, it's morning, time to wake now
