You're sitting right there by the window, fiddling with a sigarette. You know I hate that you're a smoker. And I won't let you forget. And I'm slowly inching closer, by this light of our moon. It's a warm night in the summer. I know that we'll be kissing soon. Thinking fast but talking slowly. Innuendo all around. Of course your bed creeks like it's dying, trying not to make a sound. Sharing stories about our past lives, though I don't need to hear it all. Dreaming dreams we'll dream together. And it's Sicily in the fall. You take coffee I'll have tea. We'll pet every dog we meet. Taking pictures of our feet. No bitter, just the sweet. Show your favourite spots in town. Lookin' sideways, up and down. Holding on to things we found. Wear that smile, like a crown. No I don't know what's in store for us, but I don't really care. Because I will face it nonetheless, with my fingers through your hair.
The past couple of days, have been more than enough. We're stupid dumb and crazy, or all of the above. And people might be looking, but we're not meeting their eyes. We may seem crooked, but it's you and me tonight. And we're beaming with light. But will we burst. And the colours leave. Will it hurt. Are we deceiving ourselves. We're floating on air, but there's a gap down below. We both do not dare, to face what we've always known. I hate these feelings, but I love them aswell. If it's for the best, only time will tell. If it's heaven or hell. But will we burst. And the colours leave. Will it hurt. Are we deceiving ourselves.
We'll take the next flight out of this place. No goodbyes no saving grace. No one but the two of us. Save the date o, save the date. I say oh no. How I wish it were so. I'll go out and I'll buy a car. To take us away from where we are. With you beside me squeezing my hand. We'll navigate using only the stars. I say oh no. How I wish it were so. Oh my girl why can't you see. That I just want you here with me. To help me dream about all of these things. Some day, I guarantee. I say oh no. How I wish it were so. If I could only pick you up, take you away from here.
