Stay a little bit longer, my love
The night has only just begun
A little more effort can be made
We may yet fall in love again
I have stories to tell
We have things to do
You can show me all the places that ache
I can write about them too
So what if I can’t take the pain away?
I can beautify it still, I can exaggerate
What is pain, if not a means to art?
What is pain, if not pleasure in equal parts?
Lay down your walls, along with what you wear
I want to see you all, completely bare
Under the moonlight, my moonlight, we rendezvous
You keep me a secret, I’ll tell the world about you
