I switched to rum at midnight
And dreamed a silent prayer
And hoped for things to work out here
And maybe over there.
I watered all the plants
And took the trash outside
And dreamed I wasn’t terrible
And you had what you need.
Nothing’s on and I should sleep
But it doesn’t always take
Perhaps I’d say a thing or two
If you were eating ice-cream drinking wine and sitting in my lap.
I watched you as you watched me
And pleasure was the game
And though I wished that you had joined
Still I loved it just the same.
I looked at your expression
As I carried on
And in the light of evening time
I saw my first clear dawn.
You smiled as you watched me
And then you tendered what I dreamed
And as I rode the wave to shore
Your expression fairly beamed…
I soaked in every smirk and smile
And as I rode the wave I waved
And you saw all my drunken wiles
And waved back just the same.
I do not know where this shore is
I do not know just where we are
But this is an incredible night
And I can say this though you’re far.
As we gazed into the depths
Of each other’s souls
I know that I hoped for what is best
And that you would be whole.
And then I stopped the car
And Coaxed you out of doors
Turned the music up
And danced with you so slow
The rain poured down upon us
And laughing as we went
I twirled you round and round
The sweetest angel then
I never had another girl
Quite the same as you
I hope you dance again some day
So happy in the rain.
