“Fly into my love…”
Phyllis no one could have said it better
I want to melt like glue on the pavement in the hot weather
when you are near me
I want to stop time and tell the job, the bills, the kids and the static to hush..
I want to ride on the next warm breeze that blows by,
grab your hand to make sure it’s just you and I
and slowly climb that ladder to the moon
No one needs to know where we are
Just make sure you duck that shooting star
And meet me
I don’t care if it’s just for a moment
But a lifetime would be divine
As close to heaven as we will ever be
Is walking on the moon, just you and me
I’ll make sure you get to work in the morning
We can stop by Jupiter to get you a change of clothes
I just want a moment alone
“In the middle of the sky…you and I”
Do you hear that soft love vibe
Slowly dripping down my thigh
I NEED you to meet me
Where we can lose ourselves in the moment everlasting
Far away from outside forces that interfere with our gravity
Can you meet me?
I won’t tell a soul
but you will want to when I’m through..
Can you just meet me?
Don’t make me beg
I have the ladder, just grab a rung
Can’t you get here any faster?
You won’t regret it my love
And you surely won’t forget it
You’ll be set free from all those wordly woes
When the moondust drifts softly between our toes
And I promise
I’ll call your name when you do…
