The winter chill hadn’t got to us yet
we were exchanging looks like changing books
in a library of love
suddenly my loneliness was gone
you had pierced it with your thumb
shot it with your gun

I had no bed with which to rest our head
so we laid it down with blankets on the floor
with the dog in the living room
and the smiling silver moon
came to bid her wishes well
on our new cocoon

Will this story end as it should?
I think I’m the wrong one to write it, you should

The summer heat and the storm of the century
is beating up the coast to where we are
stealing all the stars
A wondrous wind blow
and we’re naked there in the street
you tell me this is how that it should be when we go

Will this story end as it should
I think I’m the wrong one to write it
I’d be crawling to you, if I had my part in it
Just give me a sign that it’s alright and that you’ve
got me on you mind
‘Cause otherwise I will rewrite
into a story that will be
better than just me alone

One thing I can say I’ve learned from the movies
Is concluding that all things come to an end
the flickered lights will dim
but when the credits do roll
that last scene on the screen could
be the one where you and me have grown old

Will this story end as it should
I think I’m the wrong one to write it
