When Only Love Can Help

In the silvery purple of twilight
As the day comes to an end
The sun has gone from the sky
And ghostly night riders seem to be streaking by
As the inky blackness of night oozes in
Feeling s of melancholy seem to fill me
And I can’t help but feel the blues setting in
Times like these I must seek the comfort of your closeness
As only you can make me feel glad again
When nothing seems right
And a fear of the unknown
Overtakes my soul
It’s enough for me
If you put your arms around
And kiss that terror away
As we go down life’s road together
I always long to lay down with you
When the day is through
And it makes it so perfect
If you sing your lullabies to me
Sweet words of tenderness
Which can take me ever upwards
Towards the skies
As sky rockets burst high above
Sending blazing colors all about
Then if you can hold me
Till the early morning light
I know I’ll be eternally safe in your embrace
And together we’ll be forever young
