Wrap me around you
Wrap me around you,
and tell me a story
and tell it soft and tell it warm
and tell it long,
because I can’t sleep.
The night is just beginning
and the stars are wide awake,
there are lights somewhere at a distance,
there is noise inside my head
and I can’t sleep.
I know you had a long day,
I know you had a hard day
but it has been a while,
since you whispered words in my ears
and I don’t want to keep you awake
but I feel so alone
on my side of the bed.
So tell me a story,
like you used to do,
tales of dreams in a different world
majestic, even silly.
I want to hear your voice again
and vanish into the world of your fancies,
and not feel the heaviness in this one that doesn't seem to lift for a while.
Make me some promises and feel free to break,
but make them anyways
you know I am easy to please,
so wrap me around you and promise me your love,
even for a moment.
promise me the freedom from tomorrow and today,
the regrets of yesterday.
I want to feel warm and complete,
and then melt and disappear
