"Ten Year Night" as written by and Litvin Kaplansky....
There is no one else around
The road is quiet, the only sound
Is wind that sounds like cars that sound like breathing
The desert air is hot and dry
Two lanes weaving earth and sky
The stars are all that's keeping time till morning
And I turn and look beside me
And you're sleeping like a baby
And you haven't heard a word that I've been saying
And the way you look tonight
Fast asleep in the dashboard light
Well I can't speak, and that's how I feel

Open your eyes and look at me, and look at me
Open your eyes and look at me
'Cause I have and hold this love for you
Before this ten year night is through
I'm telling you
Take it from me, take it from me

We're ten years older I know we are
Than the night we met in that downtown bar
You thought I was some kind of star, that's what you said
I felt your skin, I felt the heat
As you pulled me out into the street
And you kissed me there till I was weak 'cause I asked you to
And later on on your kitchen floor
Two flights above the grocery store
I felt things I never felt before, and still do

Open your eyes and look at me, and look at me
Open your eyes and look at me
'Cause I have and hold this love for you
Before this ten year night is through
I'm telling you
Take it from me, take it from me

Going eighty on the highway
we're all rushing somewhere
But the way I feel tonight
It's like I"m already there
