LET'S MAKE A NIGHT OF IT
come so near

I'm watching you fall
you're forcing me sideways
so far from the rest
far be it from this truth
there's no place for the wicked
needing - needing - needing
would set your mind at rest
I know you would if you could
but time is of the essence
with this thread all but lost in thought
the days go by so fast
it's just that day-to-day
it's just that day today
it's just that day-to-day
oh it's just that day today
I know you would if you could
but time is of the essence
with this thread all but lost in thought
the days go by so fast

once tried, never forgotten
two worlds spinning around like it's a field-day
all these things stop & turn in my sight
& I'm thankful
& it's all I know
why time should choose which rivers flow
& then turn them
turn them off like the light
& I wonder, I really wonder

if all you do
you do it so well
then wherever you go - wherever you go
I'll go with you

all this seems so far away
so far away
these things that I could share
hold secrets still that I can't see
well it doesn't matter now
cause it didn't matter anyway
you battered your nerves
& gave in so easily
so far away
these things that I could share
hold secrets still that I can't see
so far away
these things that I could share
hold secrets still that I can't see
so far away
well it doesn't matter now
cause it didn't matter anyway
you battered your nerves
& gave in so easily

working from the idea that it's best to stop than fall
let's call this home now
sinking into moments where distraction's for the best
we'll call this home now
oh let's make a night of it
with the watchdog sound asleep - it's alright
oh let's make a night of it
with the watchdog sound asleep - it's alright
slowly we work the thread that's all but lost in thought to the wonder
we're all waiting for
but it's so far away now

come so near
I'm watching you fall
you're forcing me sideways
so far from the rest
far be it from this truth
there's no place for the wicked
needing - needing - needing
