Lyrics
The way that sunlight flits across your skirt,
Makes me feel I'm from another world,
To touch your face in the morning light.
I hope you're always gonna be around.
The times I struggle to understand why,
The ancient proverbs like who am I?
Why am I here and what have I done?
I see the answers place my trust in you

Trust in you love, be with me then,
That's when I want you, that's when I need you the most.

I want us to be like peter pan
But dreams it seems are weightless as sand,
And mans supposedly is made of sand
It seems that man cannot survive at all

Lets disappear love, lets fly away
Into the demi-monde, into the twilight zone
The times inside I spent screaming at you
Release me please from this mortal jail
One shrug or smile can determine my fate,
I'm lost for days and have myself to blame

Something I'm giving, is yours for the taking,
Something like sunlight, love is a spotlight
Love is all sorrow, still Ill meet you tomorrow
And look forward to see you, now I can't live without you
