Pull the blinds tight,
draw the curtains,
dim the lights, not so bright...
We're going to stop the hurting, for awhile, for tonight.
What does it all mean to anyone,
let alone you or me?
If it is going to make us feel a part of then...
Who is going to know?
Who is going to care?
Who gives a damn...really?
So for now rest weary mind from dusk 'til dawn,
for now Sweet Princess and I the Prince,
we shall be equal 'til tomorrow,
then again, again but pawns.
Fools to think we are different for any longer than the time
we have for ourselves allowed...
For we in time, would only fall victim of the crime,
of letting our senses, our feelings, run the same,
as the maddening crowd.
Oh, lay back, lie back, gently, loves motion so slow.
Tonight's night won't come again...
And time, oh, time,
that rascal of a friend of yours and mine,
has placed this night in our path...
Oh, who are we to say, "No, no this night shan't happen?"
Starshine, stay bright,
show my love, my love of tonight,
my friend of tomorrow,
that darkness offers now a blanket of secret innocence.
echoing in the warm summer night's breeze.
Echoes of the power, of the passion, of two now entwined,
rolling and loving,
shining as one,
finding now all which was said not to be,
can and is and from now on,
Oh, yes, love,
it will be.
Until the morning sun finds us,
putting us back in sight...
Once more a part of the maddening crowd,
that is until the night...
Oh, the night...
