Distance / Stay

DISTANCE

 

Distant in the morning

Further when I lie

Furthest when I dream

I see you in my slumbers

Growing fainter, pale and weak

 

I smile with half a heart

Pain staked upon my lips

It tastes bitter I admit

The past’s ugly future

Waiting for some thing

 

The hour has come and placed

Truth’s weight upon my chest

Everything has been and sold

It is time I bid you adieu

Goodnight and god bless.

STAY

 

Somewhere above I hear an angel sigh

Devil down below I swear I hear him cry

Stay with me – tonight

Lie beside me in the dark

 

And my senses start to ring

As I taste your lips

And stroke your skin

Low I whisper

 

Stay with me – tonight

Lie beside me in the dark

Stay with me tonight

Lie beside me – in the dark.
