It's evening in the city
The summer nights are long and warm so we head off to hit the town
Hold on to my hand
We'll parade down the promenade pass the bottle back and forth
Whisper in my ear
As we dance and drink at every bar laughing falling arm in arm
You look beautiful tonight
And your words make me embarrassed of all my misgivings

Don't kiss me goodnight
Don't kiss me goodnight
Let's greet the new day
Don't kiss me goodnight
Don't kiss me goodnight
I'm wishing I could stay

Uncork the last bottle
Crank up the vinyl
We'll drive the neighbors wild
Sing me a sad song on the fire escape
While the sun threatens the night sky
6 am? Let's go downstairs and buy ourselves one final round
And when I do sleep please god let me
Awaken with the feeling of conviction I have tonight

All I could want would be a life where I loved you and only you
And not be plagued with misgivings
A life where I knew the words we spoke were true
But I have no faith and I'm condemned
To sleepless nights and awkward misjudgements
