BLACK HOLE TIME

[Verse 1]
They say that you’ll find happiness if you wish upon a star,
but baby as I lay here with you,
I could not wish for more.
There are things that you and I
may never understand,
but not this stellar gravity when I hold your hand.

[Verse 2]
If I ever lost youto the wonders and the whys, 
I know I could find you
if I only closed my eyes.
When I listen to the whispers of the universe
I can hear you sweetly singing
this enchanted verse:

[Prechorus]
and it feels like time slows down
and there’s nothing but right now

[Chorus]        
THIS COULD BE FOREVER
YOU AND I TOGETHER
A BLANKET IN THE HEATHER
A BALMY SUMMER MIDNIGHT
UNDERNEATH THE MOONLIGHT
EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT
YOU AND I IN BLACK HOLE TIME

[Verse 3]
Sometimes we forget there’s something greater than us all,
forces moving planets,
the dreams within a soul,
and when your soul is listening,
I’m convinced it’s true,
and that is more than constellations
in the sky can do.

[Prechorus]
and it feels like time slows down
and there’s nothing but right now

[Chorus]
THIS COULD BE FOREVER
YOU AND I TOGETHER
A BLANKET IN THE HEATHER
A BALMY SUMMER MIDNIGHT
UNDERNEATH THE MOONLIGHT
EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT
YOU AND I IN BLACK HOLE TIME

 

POUR IT ON THE ALTER OF MY LOVE

[Verse 1]
Near in the distance is a shimmering glow
the kind of beacon every gentelman knows
over the lapping of the waves through the slivermoon haze comes the sound at the gate of the maze.
And now the brick and steel are growing stark
a song is drifting through the dark

[Verse 2] 
This is the port of desire, I am the guide for hire
I can show you through the shadows and the muck and the mire.
It’s just like you said, you can’t live only on bread
so let me take you through the midnight ahead:
down the back alleys leading from the dock,
where there’s a certain trade and stock.

[Verse 3]
I know the candy apple room with a single light,
oh - there’s a wild scene down there every night.
You’ve worked hard for your leave, you have a watch undersleve,
you’ll be back before the anchor should heave.
No more talk, now let’s make our way,
Can’t you almost hear her say:

[Chorus 1]
Pour it on the alter of my love
and I’ll give you what you’re dreaming of.
baby baby don’t it feel so good
almost exactly as she told you it would
just as long as one thing’s understood: it’s a Champagne dream, oh yea.

[Verse 4]
Now the satin and the velvet and the creamy lace
are giving her the power of the pace.
Keep an eye on your watch and the other on her grace
and you can keep that little smile on your face.
The coin has a silver ring.
It is only way to make her sing.

[Chorus 2]
Pour it on the alter of my love
and I’ll give you what you’re dreaming of.
baby baby don’t it feel so good
almost exactly as she told you it would
just as long as one thing’s understood: it’s a Champagne dream, oh yea.

[Bridge]
gimmie what I want
gimmie what I want, ah huh huh
ain’t you the one with the need
gimmie what I want
gimmie what I want, ah huh huh
that’s all you are to me

[Outro Chorus] 
Ah, If you want to keep your conscience clean
watching fingers sliding down those seems
get ya hip to what libation means, it’s a champaign dream, oh yea.
