As I watch you move,
Across the moonlit room.
There's so much tenderness in your loving.
Tomorrow I must leave,
The dawn knows no reprieve.
God give me strength when I am leaving.

So raise your hands to heaven and pray,
That we'll be back together someday, hey.

Tonight, I need your sweet caress.
Hold me in the darkness.
Tonight, you calm my restlessness.
You relieve my sadness.

As we move to embrace,
Tears run down your face.
I whisper words of love, so softly.
I can't believe this pain,
It's driving me insane.
Without your touch life will be lonely.

So raise your hands to heaven and pray, (And pray.)
That we'll be back together someday, hey.

Tonight, I need your sweet caress.
Hold me in the darkness.
Tonight, you calm my restlessness.
You relieve my sadness.
Tonight, I need your sweet caress.
Hold me in the darkness.
Tonight, you calm my restlessness.
You relieve my sadness.

Morning has come, another day,
I must pack my bags and say,
Goodbye.
Goodbye.

Tonight, I need your sweet caress.
Hold me in the darkness. (Darkness.)
Tonight, you calm my restlessness.
You relieve my sadness. (Sadness.)
Tonight, I need your sweet caress.
Hold me in the darkness. (Hold me in the darkness.)
Tonight, you calm my restlessness. (You calm my restlessness.)
You relieve my sadness.

    Me too,Michael:I'm a poet in Edinburgh,and writing on Sandy Hooke right now,and
    just using the word 'breathe' as in 'eat,breathe,and sleep' made me think of the song,and it's plaintive but uplifting tone:fits 'The Chronicles Of Connecticut'.

    I'm filling up here,reading the lyrics.
