Lyrics

I see you moving toward the door

I see that distant look in your eyes

I ask if you’d like any more

Your answer doesn’t come as a surprise

 

Distraction, conversation

Now the time has gone and it’s too late

I wait for your reaction

Sit and watch the action on my plate

 

Kiss my lips, take my hand

Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

And as long as we’re here

Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

That should keep you here before you say goodbye

 

I’m not a lunatic tonight

I made myself that promise last time

But I won’t give up without a fight

Refusal to move off this one line

 

What is this hyperactive

Too distractive to believe the truth

Instead I’m just reactive

Getting late to blame it on my youth

 

Kiss my lips, take my hand

Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

And as long as we’re here

Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

That should keep you here before you say goodbye
