Fighting Gravity – Ted's River Song lyrics

(Lyrics, Music: Peterson, Triano)
You, when I close my eyes, open my eyes, realize, I think I would oblige
And if I tied my tongue together, smelled a rose and fell right on my
Would it be the same, should I know your name
Could you stay for just a while?
You, when I float downstream, buy the dream and touch the stream, I
Think it would redeem
And if we drift away together filled our souls and lost all we control
Would it disagree, should I wish to be?
Could you guarantee a while
And help me down from this rope I'm walking
Such a long, long way to fall
And if I see the edge of the morning
I got no expectations at all
So dance with me tonight
Look at the sky, don't lie, just, just tell me now if I should say
Fortunate child, so wild, like the river washes sinners reconciled
Would it fall apart, should I close my heart?
Could you hold me for a while
We're alive... We are
I can see all around me
You, when I close my eyes, open my eyes, realize, I think we can surmise
And if I'm gone too long, this song is all I've got to right this wrong
Would it end the same, should I save your name?
Would you laugh with me a while
Like the breath of the night we all slip away
