lyrics

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Late at night
I lie awake and I dream
Whisper her name
And tuck it under my pillow
Again and again
Hope flows downstream
Waters quench the thirst
Of the weeping willow

Flowers smile and flirt
And give me their names
She walks beside me
Laughing in their glory
Tho trees recall
The solitude of that day
Petals pressed in pages
Tell a different story

And all the loneliness I’m paying for
I’m saving up to spend with you
And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more

Evening hangs
On the red rays of the sun
It fades and flashes
Bright on her face In the twilight
Sparks, thunder, laughter
Electric abandon
A clap mocks my heart
And echoes into the night

And all the loneliness I’m paying for
I’m saving up to spend with you
And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more

Ribbons and waves
Shimmer and drape from the stars
The moon watches
The aurora dance with a stranger
A twisted tale
A path of light through the dark
A celestial trail
That winds up deep in her heart

And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more
