lyrics

tonight we are ten thousand stories longing to be sung
tonight we are that secret on the tip of every tongue
tonight we are memory of moments that as yet don't exist
tonight's making an offer, neither of us can resist...
tonight we are the tears that fall between laughter and grief
tonight we are the stolen treasure, tonight we are the thief...
i'll grasp the rose out of your hand, and place it tween my teeth,
we'll stomp our shoes along the floor to dig out what's beneath...

dance with me another
on the last sliver of light
dance with me into the night

tonight we are a steeple as the bells begin to sound
tonight we are an ember bout to burn right through the ground
our skin's become a fire, and its spark our only name
we'll drink a toast with each caress, and feed it to the flame.
tonight will take us from a lower to the higher string,
tonight will cost us all we have, there will be a bargaining
well steal about that ship with all its brave sails unfurled
charge into that sunset and off the edge of the world..

dance with me another
on the last sliver of light
dance with me into the night.
