Hold you long

To a movie / and cry together
Sometimes, sometimes

Dance with me?
Touch me / Hold you long

All of the things
you are

It counts

Help you swear
Drink what I’m saying to you

We’ll try to imagine
I’m only dancing

He’s putting on
How happy we could be

She turns so fine
Shadow about sugar

We’ll stare into silence
Don’t get me wrong
