The Dark

Give me the time to tell you all the things I want to say
Give me the time to spell you and to take you far away
After the moon has risen and the blue is fading fast
And the sky is so dark and the day is so long past

In the moment, when the evening ends
And all the secrets are floating round our heads
When the sunlight fades and all is coated in grey
There I'll say

That your smile is like a bolt of lightning
That has struck my heart in way no one can replace
You are the thunderstorm of feelings
Creeping down my spine, keeping me awake

And that your hands are open and sure
That your grip is soft but strong and rough
And tells me you aren't going anywhere soon
You're staying here, where the dark is enough

Give me the time to tell you all the things I want to do
Give me the time to spell you and carry you on through
After the moon has risen and the blue is fading fast
And the sky is so dark and day is so long past

In the moment, after the sun goes down
All our secrets cannot be weighed down
When the stars come out and all is so bright
Then I'll say

That your smile is like a bolt of lightning
That has struck my heart in way no one can replace
You are the thunderstorm of feelings
Creeping down my spine, keeping me awake

And that your hands are open and sure
That your grip is soft but strong and rough
And tells me you aren't going anywhere soon
You're staying here, where the dark is enough

To hide all our secrets and keep them in a jar
Send them down the river, we'll watch from afar
And make hundreds of wishes on a wishing star
And I'll take the time to say

Your smile is lightning, your heart is an open sea
Your hands are strong enough, to comfort me
No matter where we go or who we will become
Tonight in the dark, being with you is like
Being home
