waiting for a sunrise, you put your finger to my lips,
next thing I knew I had a name for what I missed,
you hushed the words that I tried, fumbling, to confess,
next thing I knew you had stilled them with a kiss,
+++ a sudden laugh to take us unawares,
+++ a leaf caught in your hair, the redbird on the air,
+++ if I had any wishes left to spare I’d be there with you,
+++ next thing I knew..

we walked home in the half-light, you waltzed me down to rest,
next thing I knew you were asleep upon my chest,
and the world was never more right, far too right to stay,
next thing I knew you were 1000 miles away,
+++ a sudden laugh to take us unawares,
+++ the leaf caught in your hair, a redbird on the air,
+++ if I had any wishes left to spare I’d be there with you,
+++ next thing I knew,
+++ I’d be there with you, next thing I knew…
