It's Always Been You Lyrics

Ray LaMontagne
Since the first star split the black
Split the silence, too
Since the first dawn of this Earth
Founded clothed in blue
Since the first bird song was sung
Is through the air and float
It's been you, it's always been you
It's always been you

Since the first thrust of the sea
Life 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

Let me out of the darkness
Fed my heart an ancient lie
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
