Ray LaMontagne - It's Always Been You Lyrics




Since the first star split the black
Split the silence, too
Since the first dawn woke this Earth
Found it clothed in blue
Since the first bird song was sung
As through the air it flew
It's been you, it's always been you
It's always been you

Since the first thrust of the sea
Lie spent upon the shore
Since the first breath filled these lungs
Left them wanting more
Since the first your lips met mine
Soft as morning dew
It's been you, it's always been you
It's always been you

Led me out of the darkness
Fed my heart on ancient land
Kept me close, kept me honest
I love you, oh how I love you
Oh how I love you
Oh how I love you

Since the first star split the black
The very light itself was moved
Since the first word moved the air
One syllable and true
Since the first your eyes found mine
It was all at once I knew
It's been you, it's always been you
It's always been you

It's always been you
It's always been you

    #Dicamitutto "Since the first your eyes found mine..."

    Since the first star split the blank
    Split the silence, too
    Since the first dawn of this Earth
    Founded clothed in blue
    Since the first bird song was sung
    As through the air afloat
    It's been you, it's always been you
    It's always been you

    Since the first thrust of the sea
    Life stemmed upon the shore
    Since the first breath filled these lungs
    Left them wanting more
    Since the first your lips met mine
    Soft as morning dew
    It's been you, it's always been you
    It's always been you

    Let me out of the darkness
    Fed my heart on ancient light/love
    Kept me close, kept me honest
    I love you
    Oh, how I love you
    Oh, how I love you
    Oh, how I love you

    Since the first star split the black
    The very light itself was moved
    Since the first word could hear
    One syllable and true
    Since the first your eyes found mine
    It was all at once I knew
    It's been you, it's always been you
    It's always been you

    It's always been you
    It's always been you ~XOXOXO~

    How do you tell someone that they mean the world to you, in a way that they Will Believe you? Amazing flow of energy wrapped in each note of uniqness. Thanks for sharing!

  29. Caleb Moos

    God damnit. Ray has got a way of putting emotion into words and he just keeps getting better at it. I mean this song is written from the standpoint of someone in love. But even those of us who aren’t seeking love know this song is the exact feeling we all want to find.
