I was kind of hoping,
That you would come along,
Like the answer to a prayer,
And the music to a song.

And now that I have found you,
We will never be the same.
So, pardon, if I look at you,

Soon it will be night.
Close to the twighlight.

Time stopping time from stopping.
It's strange, the unconscious brain
Like tapping into the universe
Body in a slumped heap
I lie awake with these thoughts
Ironically keeping me up
