lyrics

turn off the light
keep our baggage out of sight
see only my eyes, feel only inside
remember the good tonight

no need to say a thing
forget before, don’t say what’s coming
find solace in this rare silence
let’s play in the forgiving darkness

Relinquish just this moment
Allow us one last night

let’s idle on high water
and disregard the tide sinking lower
though we rock between a fairytale and the world’s end
it’s just good to see your smile again

Relinquish just this moment
Allow us one last night

you walked through my field innocent as Dorothy
yet you see my wildflowers as Oz’s sleepy poppies
will we ever get anywhere or will we just stare at the cracks
in these stained yellow bricks, you ask
still here you are purring up to me like a cat
it feels better next to you
it’s as simple as that…

Relinquish just this moment
Allow us one last night
Relinquish just this moment
Allow us one last night
