Come and whisper in my ear
Tell me something I should know
Shadows of the past
Will melt with the new snow
Don't slip away
Tell me where can we both go
Is it too late to escape?
I am old and I don't know

In a distant time and place
Under moonlight cold and clear
With an ever-changing face
I will always meet you here
Where the sidewalk leads you home
Over rooftops far and near
With doors forever closed
I will always meet you here

Under the covers
American lovers
Under the covers
American lovers

Come hold me fast
Tell me this isn't fading
I feel it close
And I still like the waiting
I passed you by
Without even thinking
I'd take your picture
As if I weren't blinking

In another time and place
When the wind sings out of fear
As the shadows trace your face
I will always meet you here

Under the covers
American lovers
Under the covers
American lovers

On playgrounds at night
The streetlights shining bright
There's nowhere left to hide

Under the covers
American lovers
Under the covers
American lovers
Under the covers
American lovers
Under the covers
American lovers
