A Form So Fair

Subject: Alien Encounters, Music by Layla Vandenbergh, Lyrics & Vocals by Rob Fisher

I found you in the longleaf pines
Stood still with a staring mouth
Wide eyes, unmoved by my advance
I couldn’t leave you there

How did I find
A form so fair
So far removed from me
Too far to dare

Under pretext of measurements
And samples to catalogue
I marvel, I crave, I despair
Bound by a beauty immeasurable

How did I find
A form so fair
An unexpected love
That can’t be shared

I couldn’t show
You’ll never know
I had to set you back down
Worlds can’t collide
I left you behind
The feeling inside’s alien to me
