The Apple

The beauty of the apple must have been
Something quite extraordinary
And has been since time began
It must have had the bluest eyes
The world has ever seen
For man to taste the fruit of life
Of that forbidden tree

It must have been quite something
For man to choose a life
For man to kiss the apple
To know someday he would die

It must have been something
Beyond his wildest dreams
For man to reach and touch it
To pluck it from it's tree

As he touched and kissed it
He caressed it in his hands
Did he know what he was giving
Did man he understand

It must have been the bluest eyes
The world has ever seen
For man to choose the apple
Beyond his eternity

Sometimes I think I do know
And that I can understand
Every time you walk with me
Every time I hold your hand.
