I slip out the backdoor into the night I can still feel the sun on my bare feet tonight I am waiting to meet you And waiting to see if you feel the same way about me
Back in the 70's We were children of freedom Believing we'd make a difference when our time would come And in the darkness When the 4th grade movie played Our fingers touched togethe promising one day...that...
Tomorrow I will be yours Tomorrow I will be yours Out on a boat with the bell from the shore and the sun so low (so low or solo??)
I think I fell in love with ya When we always tied for first In clothes with holes and shoes too old and covered in dirt Always makin' me laugh Now you're - you're making me cry Your parents made some money and sent you away To a private prep school high...but
I slip out the backdoor and into the night To the elm tree we promised we'd meet here tonight I have opened the skin with my grandmothers pin And we vowed under the stars to never forget Midnight Orion is clear in the sky I can feel you come closer to kiss me goodnight Oh please kiss me and hold me and have me again You're the one that I wanted
Tomorrow I will be yours (4 times) Out on a boat with the bell from the shore, and the sun so low
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
I slip out the backdoor and into the night All the years now between us dividing our lives I hear that you married in New Orleans And I wonder if you wonder still about me Slip out the backdoor and into the night To the elm tree I go and I laugh at Orion "Cause there in the bark lies our hearts in the tree Side by side Freshly carved Not by me
