Song Lyric Sunday – Turning Page by Sleeping At Last

The first time I heard this song was when I was watching “So You Think You Can Dance.” I cried through the whole thing because not only  was the song beautiful, the dance that was choreographed for it was breathtaking as well. I immediately looked up the artist and the song and have listened to it over and over again.

Sometimes, the saddest part about discovering more about a song is that it was actually used in a movie you thoroughly dislike. (I need to caveat that and say I have never actually seen the movie, but that’s because, well, I don’t think I need a reason. It’s Twilight, after all.)

But, that won’t stop me from loving this song. The lyrics are poetry and the piano is a lovely accompaniment to them and a beautiful voice.

Favorite Line: “With a whisper we will tame the vicious seas, like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees.”

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for singer-songwriters and I hope you enjoy this installment of Song Lyric Sunday as much as I do. Feel free to read the rules below and post your own.

Turning Page by Sleeping At Last
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
Well I would have known
What I was living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase

I surrender who I’ve been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well I would have known
What I’ve been living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Though we’re tethered to the story we must tell
When I saw you, well I knew we’d tell it well
With a whisper we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees
