Tomorrow is just feigned now/ well goodbye seems so vain/ how long do you want me to lay here in your bed/ your sweet skin smells like mint/ in summer sun’s yellow air/ I’m trying to think of ways/to steal kisses from your curly locks of hair/ my shirt came off I held your hand/ flirting barefoot in the sand/ I told you every golden thing/ I even let you hear me sing/ well were you even listening/ or were we just kissing in the dark/
Is one night seen as plenty/ is one love one too many to ask from you/and your laugh/ and your somewhat misleading reputation/ we talked for hours how dare I think/ but your heart changed with every drink/ I sang you every golden song/ was falling for you all along/ no longer sure of right or wrong/ and now we’re just kissing in the dark
Well now you’ve left me wondering/ if we are temporary things/ just players in this game of fools/ flying ‘round in two-­by­-twos/ I’m breaking every single rule to lay here/ and kiss you in the dar
