Can We Meet Again, In the Light of the Morning?
Put her best foot forward
Wore her best dress
Hoping to impress
But her date ignores her
Cards kept to his vest
So when the night was closing,
Why did she ask him to go inside?
That sinking feeling growing
Hand in hand
He carefully replied:
"Can we meet again in the light of the morning?
Hope you’ll see who I am
In the light of the morning sun."
Here’s to second chances
Let’s raise a glass to masks that fall away
The queen of failed romances
And the quiet boy who never learned to stay
We’re quite the pair now, darling
Broken pieces that don’t fit that well
A fucked up movie starring
A shattered mess
and the boy who never fell
I think I love you broken
Just like you relish all my endless flaws
So many words unspoken
Except those ten that began it all
