Let us lay across from each other and steer into each other’s’ eyes till dawn.
Let me look long at your lips memorizing each corner, every turn all the angles
The sloop of your chin leading me down along your lovely neck
You know this war is madness its killing so much of what we love and cherish most dearly.
Let me lay here and listen to your heartbeat across the room, the flood still stealing towns up stream.
Last chance this night forever
It is your kiss in Green Willows
Through the gates of Hell – little relief
Amore my only salvation – your lips in twilight
Can’t you see this fire raging in my eyes?
Post cards from nowhere and never side by side
One step ahead – one step behind
All our dreams in our hands
Here you and I are at the beginning – standing near the end
Place you ear to my loves heart – Listen
Hear the bells in old Venice – their calling us home
Tonight, under this cathedral of stars
Let me hold you closer – Kiss you longer, stronger
In my timeless search to find your smile
You see the results at the front door in black leather bags tonight
This thing called love, Amore it eludes me in my dreams
Along side roads at every turn,
I have looked and not found you,
Amore, who –
Tell me who?
Can change into a cocktail dress,
While driving a 24-wheel truck,
Down a canyon pass, in a winter blizzard, with no brakes
Laughing all the way down – who else like you
And if by happen instance – By chance this reaches you
And you can give this a whirl?
You know a second thought perhaps?
A second chance
Here is the deal;
We should take a walk and talk;
Find a park, sit have lunch
Who knows – just perhaps
Later not knowing where we’ll head too, ten seconds from then
Will be, dam fine with me, let me hold you love in my hand
We should leave here and go to trust,
Oui, tons of lust, all of this yes, Si, and so much more.
Amore, ask yourself, who’s move now?
I will meet you halfway from there to Timbuktu;
I’ll meet there, I’ bring lunch.
I am out of my mind, most the time, see the tempo
I know this, I know so must you, i love you
But you must also know that once your hand is in mine
As friend or as lover, not even hell armies
God or man, would I not fight to keep you safe
My Amore for your love, for you
By the way, your horns are showing
Perhaps we should look a little closer, see what words we can never say
Come lets walk a little further together
You never know what’s around the next turn…
