lyrics

At evening I love you in the Western sky
I’m leaving one more day behind
as times moves on and bloodies the sun
I look for you on the horizon
If I could find you I’d hold you tight
but I’m leaving that up to the dreaming
But you’re never alone on a summer night
And they rub their wings and swell their chests with singing
But the songs of the night
don’t sound the same
without you breathing
the songs of the night don’t sound the same

You know I love Time
how she laid a quilt down
for us to pass the afternoons together
Now time is all mine
mine to spend alone
and it’s hard when home
is just a kitchen

You know the night loves
your sweet company
and now I ask her to share you with me
But try as I might
to speak with the trees
the forest won’t call out your name
And the songs of the night don’t sound the same
without you breathing
the songs of the night don’t sound the same
