Lie with me somewhere under sleepy stars
Darlin' lie with me somewhere on the edge of night
Lie with me in the tall wet grass
Darlin' lie with me somewhere on the edge of light
Somewhere where it can be
Just you and me

I believe in the absence of sun
I believe in the shadow of one
I believe in the power of two
I believe in the darkness of you
My love, my love, my darkest love

Lie with me somewhere under desert hills
Darlin' lie with me somewhere on the virgin sand
Lie with me on the warm black stones
Darlin' lie with me somewhere on the virgin strand
Somewhere where it can be
Just you and me

I believe in the absence of sun
I believe in the shadow of one
I believe in the power of two
I believe in the darkness of you
My love, my love, my darkest love

All I need is you to show me the light
All I need is you to show me the light
All I need is you to show me the light
Show me, show me, show me the light

[spoken text]

In this still beating night
I lie close to your face
The moon is a spotlight
For this quiet space
If we stay still like statues
And don't say a word
We will not be seen
We will not be heard
The stillness has purpose
Its own subtle dance
If we move just an inch
We have ruined this chance
It's the calm that is key here
Its coolness has strength
It shadows hold mysteries
Locked to great lengths

Black like a bible
Read words in hand
Black like a crow
Flying low to the sand
All eyes are closed to the absence of light
Those others, still sleeping, are nowhere in sight
But we hear the starfall that cannot be seen
And we feel the stirrings of things in between
Tell me dreams in the dark
That you can't tell by day
And ways you've discovered
To hold dawn at bay
