Having to write 10 songs about someone who left is worth being able to write just one song about someone who stayed. - David


I remember how your teeth felt,
on the back, on the back of my neck.
I remember stars that seemed too bright,
lighting up that surreal night like little angels.

I remember how your lips moved,
softly ‘cross every inch of my skin.
I remember lyin’ on my back,
my hands gripping the grass like I was falling.
And I remember thinkin’ that…

In a few hours now it’s gonna rain.
In just a few hours now, it’s gonna change.

Things change in the morning rain,
‘cause baby, night is easier to take.
First thing I said when those stars went away
is I knew we’d touch, I knew we’d touch,
but I didn’t know you’d stay.

I remember how your hands felt,
when they touched, touched a sinner like me.
I remember wondering if the breeze
was whispering to the autumn leaves, “She’s forgiven.”
And I remember thinkin’ that…

My love, my love, my love,
if those night feelings start to fade –
hang on, hang on, hang on.

My love, my love, my love,
those stars will come back some day.
Just hang on, my love, hang on.
