When The Night Is Over


When the night is over

all the magic is gone

even though I still feel your hands grasp my wrist and

my head echoes back everything you said to me


I know I can’t get it back


The stars pull away the twilight and

hold me captive for a few hours

But even though in daylight

we still walk side by side,

the sun pulls us apart


And even in another night

it won’t be the same, we won’t be

in this place with this chemistry


Because every minute of the night

we collide faster and longer

and I keep wanting to pull you closer to me when the sun rises

but I can’t, I know I can’t.
