So congratulations, boy, you kept me up til dawn again
but this time I had to put you on a plane
Not knowing when I'll see you next,
I head back home-the place is a mess.
Seems like happiness is changing my familiar terrain.
I will sleep the day away, your sweet self holding court in my brain,
my prince of mischief, bringer of exquisite pain.
You'll be headed halfway round the world, your best-laid plans unbroken
and here I'll stay, soon be on my way to weightless.
You have me well on my way to weightless.
So much for all my suits of armor, baby, you got through.
Loved what you found, set up camp, and it's a good thing, too.
Now you spin around me, like the wondrous tales you tell,
and I find happiness is changing almost everything I do.
I will sleep the day away, your sweet self wrapped around my brain,
all my dreams enchanted into conversation.
Though you're headed halfway round the world, the best is yet unspoken,
so on I'll play, soon be on my way to weightless.
You got me well on my way to weightless.
My lover is the west wind, you see it in that devil's grin
still keeping me company after I've closed my eyes.
He lifts me up high as life, with both our wings out, brave and bright.
So maybe Juliet was right, and it's love at every single sight!
So the queen of spades and the jack of all trades
separate on perfect terms of amity and perfect days to come.
'did you bring your keys?'
'yes, and you're coming with me!
hold on to your heart, love, I'm about to set you free.'
I will dance the day away, your sweet self wrapped around my brain
I will dance the time away, it's no time til I see your face,
and it's love, we'll say,
on our way to weightless
We are well on our way to weightless
