I could talk to you for hours
At any time of day
Yet the talking never makes
This cruel ache go away

It’s the years that hold us back
And the miles I have to go
Didn’t look so far
On the guide to the short wave radio

So kiss me in the night
Dismantle my whole life
Trade private kisses in a public place
With a secret smile upon our face

Come kiss me in the night
Take tender liberties
I love you for the flaws
And the inconsistencies

And someone else will come
To make you cry and laugh
The world will stumble on
With me and my wounded heart

I miss you when I sleep
I miss you when I sing
A fool it was who said
That true love conquers everything

So kiss me in the night
One kiss for my whole life
Unfurl your fingers from the sheets
I’ll stroke your hair to help you sleep

And a lost and broken voice
Will crackle through the night
Bring comfort on the waves
To the pirates and the stowaways

The years that hold us back
The miles we’ll never know
They didn’t look so far
On the guide to the short wave radio

It didn’t look so far
It didn’t look so far
It didn’t look so far my love
On the guide to the short wave radio love
