I need you now

I need you now.

The sun is dropping, it looks tired,

The air is all but gone,

The world is sleeping, deep in slumber,

Yet I am here, still all alone.

 

I watch the sky as it darkens,

The water as it calms,

I watch the birds returning home,

And then I look at my empty palms.

 

It’s too black for night,

And too silent for hell,

And the water’s freezing cold too,

As it rushes over in gentle swells.

 

The time has come, my love,

You said you’d come somehow,

Cause I can’t live it down anymore,

I need you, I need you now.
