RIDE THE NIGHTWINDS

Copyright 2017 Robert E. Shandor

 

Come on pretty baby shimmy ‘cross that floor

You got that look, like your huntin’ for more

Twelve dogs barkin’ at a liar’s moon

I gotta have ya, if it means my doom

 

Playin’craps with loaded dice

I’ve tried it once, might try it twice

Sometimes you win, most times you lose

But that’s no reason not to make your move  

 

You know in your heart

There’s nothing more to say

Come with me, honey,

Let’s sail the nightwinds away

So come with me, honey,

Let’s sail the nightwinds away

 

I get this impulse I can’t control, when you

Touch me deeply, inside my soul

Sparks some kindling then bursts to flame

Unleashes something too wild to name

 

You might up your odds on a different wheel

Likewise, too, with a change of deal

Chance flies best on a steady wind

But you always need a place to take refuge in

 

It’s time to see how good

Together we’ll be

Take my hand, baby,

Come ride the nightwinds with me

So take my hand, baby,

Come ride the nightwinds with me

 

Come on pretty baby shimmy ‘cross that floor

You got that look, like your huntin’ for more

Twelve dogs barkin’ at a liar’s moon

I gotta have ya, if it means my doom

 

You know in your heart

There’s nothing more to say

Come with me, honey,

Let’s sail the nightwinds away

It’s time to see how good

Together we’ll be

Take my hand, baby,

Come ride the nightwinds with me  

 

Ah…come on, honey, and

Ride the nightwinds with me
