How long since I've spent a whole night in a twin bed with a stranger

 

His warm arms all around me

 

How long since I've gazed into dark eyes that melted my soul down

 

To a place where it longs to be

 

All of your history has little to do with your face

 

You're mainly a mystery with violins filling in space

 

You stood in the nude by the mirror and picked out a rose

 

From the bouquet in our hotel

 

And lay down beside me again and I watched the rose

 

On the pillow as it fell

 

I sank and I slept in a twilight with only one care

 

To know that when day broke and I woke that you'd still be there you would still be there

 

The hours for once they passed slowly unendingly by

 

Like a sweet breeze on a field

 

Your gentleness came down upon me and I guess I thanked you

 

When you caused me to yield

 

We spoke not a sentence and took not a footstep beyond

 

Our two days together which seemingly soon would be gone would be gone

 

Don't tell me of love everlasting and other sad dreams

 

I don't want to hear

 

Just tell me of passionate strangers who rescue each other

 

From a lifetime of cares

Because if love means forever expecting nothing returned

 

Then I hope I'll be given another whole lifetime to learn

 

Because you gave to me oh so many things it makes me wonder

 

How they could belong to me

 

And I gave you only my dark eyes which melted your soul down

 

To a place where it longs to be
