The sun left the stage,
And the blue-black horizon
Stole the last of my kind words,
I've nothing to say.
As we walk 'neath the street lamp
That's flickering on
I suggest that we dance,
But you just laugh it off.

Summer love once was easy,
But innocence, she's fleeting
And I'm not as young as I once was.
And your eyes look as tired as
A midwestern sky after
Three days of thunderstorms
But couldn't we try...

My painted words,
Tell me what they're worth.

And come over tonight
If you want me.
Come over tonight,
Spend some time.
I won't ask for forever,
How 'bout til the light?
Won't you lay with me here for a while
And come over tonight.

Recalling the way
That a candle between us
Casts shadows that seem to make sense
And there's music in French
I don't quite understand
As my awkward advances, they
Made us both laugh.

Now harsh words like trust, desire and love
Are just sand in the ocean for us
Cause there's too much at stake,
And we couldn't explain,
So for now, can't we just pretend
That this is enough?

My painted words,
Tell me what they're worth.

And come over tonight
If you want me.
Come over tonight,
Spend some time.
I won't ask for forever,
How 'bout til the light?
Won't you lay with me here for a while
And come over tonight.

Come over tonight
If you want me.
Come over tonight,
Spend some time.
I won't ask for forever,
Forever's too long.
Won't you lay with me here for a while,
Won't you lay with me here for a while,
Won't you lay with me here for a while,
And come over tonight.
