When I look at all of those centuries

of walks made out of loneliness

and desperation

a rush of light turns those years

into an instant

I'm glad that I've found my way

yes, I'm glad that I'm not so afraid

yes, I'm glad I'm free to love you today

 

I woke up this morning

and watched you

and waited

to kiss you again

and tell you how sweet

the love making had been

now I'm sitting here in your rocking chair

I'm still waiting

and it doesn't matter if I tell you

'cause I think you know by now

 

I like the way your eyes soften

and turn slightly glazed

when you take off your glasses

and your shirt

and I know it's just my opinion

but that's all that's important right now

I tell you

I never traveled so far

as I did with you in the dark

 

I tell you

I never traveled so far

as I did with you in the dark

 

 

Traveling In The Dark

 

I like the way your eyes soften

and turn slightly glazed

when you take off your glasses

and your shirt

and I know it's just my opinion

but that's all that's important right now

I tell you

I never traveled so far

as I did with you in the dark
