Marry The Night

  • You were the one
    Who painted the sun in my sky
    You took me to bed
    And laid down my head for the first time
    You opened up doors
    And you danced 'cross the floors
    And polished the moon til it shined
    You left me blind

    When you came around
    You turned up the sound of my heart
    I could feel it in waves
    It echoed in caves of my soul
    But you left and you're leaving
    Me open and bleeding
    Painting the red on the rose
    You let me go

    I'll wait a while for you
    Stay home a night or two
    Make it to three, I'll be gone
    'Cause I can't keep waiting
    And the whiskey I'm chasing
    Tells me it's love that's gone wrong

    I should just go
    Turn out the light
    And marry the night

    I spent my life in a dream
    Wishing I wouldn't be alone
    I wait by the phone
    Willing the tone to come through
    But this room stays silent
    And the calm becomes violent
    With the ghosts of the memories of you

    I couldn't do
    Nothing to stop you
    You met someone new

    But I'll wait a while for you
    Stay home a night or two
    Make it to three, I'll be gone
    'Cause I can't keep waiting
    And the whiskey I'm chasing
    Tells me it's love that's gone wrong

    I should just go
    Turn out the light
    And marry the night

    You were the one
    Who painted the sun in my sky
