Take me home tonight

He intended to leave with grace, but he is unable to forget her face
The feel of her skin against his fingers, it is a memory that still lingers
He walks down the empty street; head bowed down in defeat
She is an explosion in his emotions, tears in neverending oceans
He wants to hold her one more time and see her light shine
And there she is, under a streetlight, illuminated by the night 
He remembers the smell of her hair, and strolls over there
Their eyes meet, and he wants to run. What if she is done?
But she is not; she holds out her hand as if there had never been an end
That slight touch makes everything right, and they walk off into the midnight.
Together, at last, he is glad that life without her is in the past.

  1. Take me home tonight
    I don’t want to let you go ’til you see the light
    Take me home tonight
    Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang
    Be my little baby, oh, ho, oh.

              1. Ok.. here’s a lullaby

                On candy stripe legs the spiderman comes
                Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
                Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
                Looking for the victim shivering in bed
                Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and suddenly!
                A movement in the corner of the room!
                And there is nothing I can do
                When I realize with fright
                That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!
