[VERSE 1]
Let’s close our eyes in the daylight
Just so we can daydream
Draw pictures of bright things long-forgotten
Bring back the beauty we lost

[VERSE 2]
Let’s hum when we forget the words
Dance when the sky’s crying out
Let the breeze caress your skin
Let go of things you carried

[CHORUS 1]
Can we feel every motion?
Every heartbeat in our chests?
I wanna touch the edge of the ocean
Explore the woods in our heads
We’ll hold each other as we stand
In the space between the light
In the space between the light

[VERSE 3]
Let’s open our eyes in the nighttime
Just so we may perceive
Trace patterns in the blanket of specks
Breathe the crisp air of the dark

[CHORUS 2]
Can we feel every motion?
Every rustle in the wind?
I wanna touch the edge of the ocean
Stretch gravity ‘til it bends
We’ll hold each other as we stand
In the space after twilight
In the space after twilight

[BRIDGE]
So lean in to my embrace
Listen to what we don’t say
Inhale the light with me
Exhale the fear you can’t see
Run your fingers along the earth
Let the grass absorb your hurt
I’m holding you as we stand
In the space before the dawn
In the space before the dawn

[VERSE 4]
Let’s sip champagne made of starlight
And tequila made of a sunrise
Cabernet distilled from the dusk
And whiskey made from a harvest moon

[CHORUS 3]
Can we feel every motion?
Every whisper of our love?
I wanna touch the edge of the ocean
Hear laughter from the sun above?
We’ll hold each other as we stand
In the space between the light
In the space between the light

[OUTRO]
Hold onto me 
I hold tight to you
In the space between the light
This is part of a series of songs written about/to an important person in my life. ;)
The first song needs some serious editing, so idk when you'll be seeing it. The third song is one I've already published, called "All the Ways."
This is sort of in the style of Sleeping At Last.

    Re: Yes, I actually wrote it to the tune of that and wrote new lyrics, and then afterwards I wrote it to a new one, if that makes sense!

    Re: Let them cry to you. I have called my best friend who is in college or face timed my boyfriend crying to them. Or I call them and vent to them. I am a venter. I need to raise my voice and get out my hurt to someone (typically it isnt even directed to the person but I do raise my voice). Be a listener to your friends. Please please please do not tell them that it is all going to be ok. That does not help at all. Do not tell them you have no struggles and don't understand them. Just listen to them and show them you love them. If you actually put the effort in to see how they are doing and try to spend time with them it will help a lot. But make sure you are both equally checking up on each other.
