Let me light up the sky,
light it up for you.
 
     I couldn't get enough of you.
 
 My sense of time slipped away like the cold in our embrace,
    my worries just melted into the water like shivers.
 
     How long did we kiss, love?
     How long did your eyes hold mine?
     How long did we look up at the stars?
 
    It could've been hours, but it still wouldn't seem like
 quite enough. Lost in this moment, in this night, this day.
 
     I couldn't get enough of you.
 
 My arms wrapped about your neck, yours around my waist. If
 I wasn't greeted by the  sight of your  smiling face  each
 time,  I doubt I ever would've pulled away from your lips.
 Why worry about air  --  you'd just leave me  breathless .
 
 
 
                                  & please
                                    don't
                                    let me go
 
 
 
                  the words came into my head,
          studying your face in the starlight
 
 
                  the words came into my head,
          but  they could not form on my lips
 
 
                   ah, but who needs words --
              you already know, don't you?
