Never Let Me Guess

 

In the dawning of the day 

I can see time slipping by 

And you’re stepping from my doorway 

as the sun begins to rise 

Oh how I wish that you could stay 

or I could go along 

Or your arms and all you are 

could make the night keep stretching on 

We both know I’ll write about this 

long after you have gone 

How we both know 

I sure can carry on 

Does it make a difference 

that I know you feel it less 

Or that you didn’t, 

you would never let me guess 

You crawled into my bed, 

now return most every night 

You came to me in dreaming        

then moved me into life 

Though I know that this is fleeting 

if asked again I still would choose 

The time we have is precious, 

I’m spending all I have on you 

We both know I’ll write about this 

long after you are gone 

How we both know 

I sure can carry on 

Does it make a difference 

that I know you feel it less 

Or that you didn’t, 

you would never let me guess 

When you move in close 

so to hold me when you sleep 

I know those moments loveliness 

I am not meant to keep 

It’s the things you say in darkness 

that you never say in light 

For that trespass I’ll forgive you 

if right now you’ll hold me tight
