Gem
© 2005 Micseven Music, Mark Jude McGee Music (ASCAP)

She was handed down like an angel
Bearing gifts of love i've never seen
Dropped 'em in my lap then stands before me
Waiting so patiently
Gazing down upon me so mysterious
Eyes of topaz and the finest jade
Pulls me in I'm slowly captivated
What was I waiting for

When she's lying there beside me
Mesmerized within her spell
Such a dreamlike fascination
As my heart begins to swell

And just in the nick of time
I noticed the gem you are
I hoped but I never thought you'd come

Electric how you shocked me
Woke me up and tuned me into you
Every passing day and night you rock me
A dream come true
All my jagged edges how they shine now
I always a diamond in the rough
Even when you wrap those arms around me
It's never enough - I need all of your love

When she's lying there beside me
Mesmerized within her spell
Such a dreamlike fascination
As my heart begins to swell

And just in the nick of time
I noticed the gem you are
I hoped but I never thought you'd come
You cured me with all your heaven
Bliss the best medicine
Surely you knew it all along
How I longed for your love

I'm under lock and key now
The keeper of my heart you have become
Protected by the power you possess me
I'm saved by the sun
Baby in my final hour of darknessv You cast the light of love into my eyes
You always said you travel with the moon girl
A star in the night - I realize

(repeat chorus)
