Lyrics: 

Scent of You

V1
dreaming of the Northeast woods
winding paths down to the shore
the sweet songs of sparrows play
squirrels scamper on the forest floor
I can feel a light breeze blowing
as bright morning sun warms my face
ahead water sparkles like diamonds
I stop to breathe it all in..
breathe in the magic of this place

C1
the musky earthy scent of moss
the clean fragrance of white pines
the fresh dampness of morning dew
and faint patchouli scent of you

how I love all the scents around me
especially of the closeness of you

V2
navigating down a steep ravine
a shy porcupine crosses the trail
by a grove of white birch trees
deer graze flashing soft white tails
red tree roots cling firm to rocks
lush ferns give way to tall grass
at the edge of tan sandstone cliffs
I stop to breathe it all in…
breath in beauty so full and vast

C2
the sweetness of green sea grass
the light saltines of calm blue seas
the dry rocky scent of sand dunes
and cinnamon toothpaste of you

how I love all the scents around me
especially of the closeness of you

B
all the world comes so alive
when you lie close next to me
dreaming about adventures
and all the beauty we will see
now I sense such wonder
as I drift back to sleep
in your arms… there’s the

C1
the musky earth scent of moss
the clean fragrance of white pines
the fresh dampness of the dew
and faint patchouli scent of you

C2
the sweetness of the sea grass
the light saltines of calm blue seas
the dry rocky smell of sand dunes
and cinnamon toothpaste of you

how I love all the scents around me
especially of the closeness of you

Wow...If I could write like that I would. This is so good, skirmish or not. You've transported me to a wonderful place with such descriptive scenes. So well done.
