I will wait for you until the light
If you do not come I will be fine
'Cause when the morning rises I will go
So I don't care if you don't come home
I would drink from your lips like apple wine
You can spend the year, just stay the night
And nothing I see is of consequence
So please close the door and take off your dress

And I
That's the easy part
And I
Can't finish what we've started
You and me will never see the light
No, you and me will never get this right
So goodbye, goodnight

And I will sing out loud so you can hear my voice
Now come in close, you've made your choice
And all the things I'd wish you be
Evaporate like whispered dreams
And I would trace my name on freckled skin
I'd kiss your neck then start again
I'd apologise for all I've done
But I'm still not sure if that's what you want

And I
That's the easy part
And I
Can't finish what we've started
You and me will never see the light
No, you and me will never get this right
So goodbye, goodnight

Oh the wishes I make won't come true
Still I'd like to spend this night with you
Oh the sheets are soft, the bed is warm
So I'm begging you to come back home
Said I'm begging you please to come back home

And I
That's the easy part
And I
Can't finish what we've started
You and me will never see the light
No, you and me will never get this right

And I
That's the easy part
And I
Can't finish what we've started
You and me will never see the light
No, you and me will never get this right
So goodbye, goodnight

    General Comment:this is a beautiful song. to me it explains a love that has ended to soon for him. they keep coming back together and he wants to tell her that he loves her, but the words just can't quite fall from his lips. he wishes that things would work out and that she'd just come back to his arms but she doesn't feel the same way.
