With You

November 3, 2016

 

 

 

 

here I am, just the stranger in the storm 
wanting just a little warmth 
a place to hide my form 
so let me stay, once a king but now a knave 
give me calm beneath your shade 
a quiet place to lay my head down 

you're right on time 
I was sure to lose my light 
it's all I can bear 
on the wild ascending stair 
beneath the stars, to dream a dream 

just a little while with you 

and I could sleep, a little while beneath the sheets 
with all my strength regained, stand up once and say 
that we can't stay, not with a smile or with a wave 
we are soon betrayed and lifting up that weight we stumble 

but you could stay 
though we're born to fall away 
it's all I can bear 
on the wild ascending stair 
beneath the stars, to dream a dream 
just a little while with you
