lyrics

i read a story just the other day an ancient play
in it people never die
every moment they just let it slip away
love it lingers like a sigh

*you and i my dear
every time you’re near
i won’t let it slip on by

as we walk the night
in your eye a light
no i won’t let it slip on by*

i watch you lie there as the moonlight trickles through the window pane
casting particles of light
from the sun they hit the moon and then caress your face
and time it bends so i can fight

see the speed of light is fixed but time can change so that’s my game
i hold the moment with all my might
enraptured by your vision i embrace the light it grows to flames
time i cut down with a knife

you awake in the moonlight and suddenly i drop my gaze
you ask if everything’s alright
you smile and slip on clothes, take my hand and lead the way
to go and walk this perfect night
