Together

The lonely hours drift past like days

And sunlight drowns in shoreless haze

Till we can be

Till we can be

Together

When you are near time disobeys

Each minute lives and dies ablaze

How urgently

They flee from me

Together

I can run in place or feel I’m barely creeping

While the clock hands chase the hours in a whirl

Yet when I gaze on you as you lay sleeping

Each moment seems a perfect shining pearl

Our stars will cross the sky in phase

As we explore a thousand ways

And seek the key

To wander free

Forever

I'm on my knee

In hopes that we

Can oversee

Eternity

Together

Together

Together

Together
