You were wreathed in a red sky
On the day our eyes met
And I kept that dice rolling
Just to see how you'd bet
By the time that bar emptied
I was already spent
That gift under starlight
When my sweetheart was sent

Your face a salvation
That I'll take to my grave
Your whisper a levy
I could never repay
When my words stuttered empty
My heart took their place
The pavement still glows
From our footprints remains

And I'll plead my petition
Til I'm worn
Calibrating your position
Left me torn
When I pulled at your ribbons
I felt myself fall
Thought the wild storm
I'll follow your call

Nothing I could ever leave for
Nothing I would never feel
When I heard that a true love awaited
I knew just what lay by the water
You were home
