  • Across the night
    It was the moon that stole my slumber
    Across the night
    I fell in love with people sleeping
    And hugged a man's arthritic shoulder

    I fell tired, asleep in a golden ocean
    Your eyes perspired, a spike in my fascination

    I don't mean to make you cry
    But this feeling will run right through the night
    And I'll only make you cry with these feelings

    Sleepless, untamed without a leash on the light around me

    So let us be married and have another baby
    'cause I don't want to be lonely I just want to be alone
    Yeah let's just get married shouting baby, baby, babies
    "You'll never sleep at all"
    But I don't want to be lonely

    Never seen the sunshine
    From higher ponts than sunrise
    I don't want to be lonely
    I just want to be alone Writer/s: DANIEL JOHNS
