Thoughts in the shape of words.

Late Hours

I saw you dancing in the crowd

And you were so young and free

As free

As only you could be

In my search for joy

Won’t you dance with me?

 

Give me one night of mischief

One night of lust

And I’ll give you my entire love

‘Cause I work hard all week

To pay my bills

Wont you come on darling

And give me that thrill

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

You know I’ve spent some time alone

And I’ve been down on the ground

Never sound

Yes on the verge to drown

I’m not satisfied

In this dull old town

 

If I can break out of here

Holding you near

I’m on my way to the promised land

And with you beside me

I’ll never stop

Getting out of of what’s less

Finding my right place

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

Let’s roam the streets tonight

And let me hold you tight

My bed will provide us comfort

Safety for two lovers

Underneath these covers

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

Rain Keep A-falling

Inside waiting as the rain keeps falling

It falls with the harshness of a whip

And I wonder about this hard rain

And I’m thinking about abandoning ship

 

You can call yourself a god of whatever

Plead your right to the wind and weather

And those who are mad sure speak their mind

They take much space but not for the better

 

You keep crawling

Try to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling

 

And outside the masses are getting wet

And they never even knew their threat

Isn’t it so sad to see those people met

Now all I can see is their silhouette

 

Strengthen the levees now for the flood

Because you know it’s coming fast

And I ask you how much blood

Does it take to repeat the past

 

You keep crawling

Try to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling

 

Why would you fight against yourselves

When theres a larger evil out there everywhere

I can never figure out why we kill ourselves

Or let the worst of us be billionaires

 

But I innerly wish for just anything

Anything that beats this wicked reality

To get out of our everyday boxing ring

And to see a live and let live mentality

 

And you keep crawling

Try so hard to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling
