Come Lay with Me--By Mike Brigden--England

Come Lay with Me

I want us to lay down in the long grass,
My head rested on your stomach,
Watching the heavens float by,
Holding hands and making small talk,
Between moments of quiet bliss,
I want to hear your heartbeat,
Feel it synchronise with my own,
Let minutes become hours,
Losing sight of tomorrow,
Alive in the present,
Counting each second as though
There is a lifetime between them,
Heads casually turning,
As we catch each other's eyes,
Something is exchanged between us,
Right at that point,
Something from deep inside,
All of a sudden, the world around us
becomes blurred, we are lost in each other,
Never to be found again.
