Underneath the Universe [single]

by The Parlor

in the shadows in the back I will wait for you / to open your window and climb out thorough / and I’ll call to you like an owl in the night / who are you can you take flight / and you’ll come to me in silence in a flash of light / like a revelation oh my my / you are beautiful in your radiance / pure as love can I have this dance / underneath the universe / I want to be love / we tried to get away we tried to be real / we tried to be true about how we feel / we lied to each other like we lied to ourselves / tossing wishes in a well / why are we here when we have no choice / where there is no sight and there is no voice / you are beautiful when you’re mystified / take my hand I’m along for the ride / underneath the universe / I want to be love


Underneath the Universe is about loving oneself, naked and true. Realizing you and the universe are inseparable and so loving yourself means loving all. It’s about finding truth in the darkness at the center of our being, and remembering we have been and will always be exactly what we are. The song is a prayer: I want to be love.
