Nina Gordon – Tonight And The Rest Of My Life

Posted in Uncategorized on August 12, 2011 by windchimes83

Down to the earth I fell
With dripping wings,
Heavy things won’t fly
And the sky might catch on fire
And burn the axis of the world
That’s why
I prefer a sunless sky
To the glittering and stinging in my eye

Oh I feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Oh I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
Tonight and the rest of my life

Gleaming in the dark sea
I’m as light as air
Floating there breathlessly
When the dream dissolves I open my eyes
I realize that
Everything is shoreless sea
Weightlessness is passing over me

Oh I feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Oh I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
Tonight and the rest of my life

Everything is waves and stars
The universe is resting in my arms

I feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
