Central Park, right after dark,
We are laughing, holding hands there in the grass.
The summer sun, has just begun,
To sing a lullabye to us, and it feels so good.

You and me, we've got everything we need.

I'm not seeking shelter from no God-forsaken storm,
Just lay with me tonight and keep me warm.

Freckles on your arms, I pretend they're stars,
And find new constellations right beneath my hands.
I don't know, where the next six months will go,
But I'm sure sunrise tomorrow will be better than the one before.

You and me, we've got everything we need.

I'm not seeking shelter from no God-forsaken storm,
Just lay with me tonight and keep me warm.
Just lay with me tonight and keep me warm.

I count my footsteps and the avenues as I get close to you; yes, I do.
I can't ever seem to say quite what I really mean...
You're beautiful and I'm not easy to please,
So I will take the D train down from Harlem when you need me.
You're beautiful and I'm not easy to please,
So I will take the D train down from Harlem when you need me.

I'm not seeking shelter from no God-forsaken storm,
Just lay with me tonight and keep me warm.
Lay with me tonight and keep me warm.
Won't you lay with me tonight and keep me warm?

    General CommentThis song is about knowing someone and knowing that they won't be with you forever; whether you think they 'just like you back' or if they 'love you back'. It's just about you two spending that one last night together, doing whatever you two can do. You know she's not gonna be there forever, it's not her obligation to do so... But, just for one night, you need her to be with you.

    General CommentI think it's about a long distance relationship. But I guess it can be interpreted however. But like, when he talks about taking the train when they're needed, it just sounds like something like distance is separating them and every next day is better than the one before... cause they're closer to being able to be with each other. I don't think it necessarily means their LAST night together...just their last for a while.
