I could leave you in the morning I could leave you in the night I could leave you at high noon Or I could leave you in the moonlight I could leave you in the summer When the leaves all fall I could leave you in the spring When the snow is gone But I will never leave you No matter what I say No I could never leave you Because you never stayed I could leave you in the alley Of any lonely bar I could leave you like a dog In the back seat of my car I could leave you in your bedroom I could leave you in the hall I could leave you lost and wandering The worlds biggest mall But I could never leave you No matter how I try No I could never leave you Because you’ve already said goodbye No I will never you No matter what I sing in song No I will never leave you Cuz you’re already gone

Time It tumbles like a stream It looks the same but it’s always changing Time Means little to me We found eachother so we’ll keep on floating When I was young With wide open eyes I never believed that You’d be by my side But you needed me And I needed you Who needs the facts When we both know the truth If I could do over I’d do it over and over again Go back to the start Cut to the chase and give you my heart You’re the one You’re the one You’re the one for me I can see I can see You’re the one You’re the one You’re the one for me So come right here, stay with me On top of a mountain With so much to say We can save our words for another day What matters the most Our hearts found a home When we walk together We’re never alone I’m no longer young With eyes open wide But i'm still in awe to have you stand by my side We don’t own tomorrow Can’t see round the bend Who needs the facts When we can pretend And when we’re haunting Deep in the garden of forking paths I know where we stand I close my eyes as you take my hand You’re the one You’re the one You’re the one for me I can see I can see You’re the one You’re the one You’re the one for me So come right here, stay with me

To Fall In Love it can only exist if you make it it can only be seen through your eyes like a shadow in darkness waiting for you to turn on the light it might arrive when you aren’t looking or it could take a few tries we all see a different beast in the clouds up in the sky it’s not hard to fall in love, if you want to fall in love if it’s what you want it takes time to know that you want it it takes time to know what it means to give yourself over to another shaping who you can be like David buried in marble like a totem in place of a tree like the valley waiting for the prairie to be worn down by the stream. it’s not hard to fall in love, if you want to fall in love it’s not hard to fall in love, if you want, to fall in love if it’s what you want right now.

You’re the cloud in the sky When I’m feeling blue When it’s raining hard You’re the morning dew I’m a workhorse You’re the jockey’s shoe If you stick with me then I’ll stick with you If you’re the entourage of airforce one Then I’m the blank bullet in the loaded gun And if we’re dinner You’d be an oil fondue I was just raw meat til I met you When I’m a religion You’ll be my secret sect You can do the things that I might regret From now til forever Forever now From now til forever Forever now And if I’m an author Then you’re misery And at the end of the day, you’re good for me Oh through comedy or tragedy I’ll stick with you if you stick with me You’re the dog-eared page Of my open book The story's old but It’s worth a look And if you’re a story and I’m the news Nothing I say should be taken as true From now til forever Forever now From now til forever Forever now You’re the cloud in the sky When I’m feeling blue If you stick with me, then I’ll stick with you.
