Peggy Watson: Music

Orion's Skies

(Peggy Watson)
words/music by P. Watson
I kick my shoes off and you don't care
I slide on down into your easy chair
Lights fading, shadows fill the room
I lose myself among them on this sultry afternoon

There's no one listening to what we say
I'm feeling safe here and I'd like to stay
You tell me secrets, my own are hard to find
Cause there's too many fences wrapped around my mind

But I'm wide open for a little romance
And I'm still hoping for a second chance
And I pray for mercy on those friends of ours
Who never feel the moment, who never see the stars

You don't know much about the world outside
You're tired of politicians, wars, and lies
I try to pardon your apathy
You think god and Casteneda are gonna set me free

But I hang on for life to every word you say
Am I just getting soft or losing track
But you remind me how a dreamer can get carried away
And I hope I never find my way back

The night is falling on your sleepy eyes
I'm staring out across Orion's skies
I kiss your hair and wish that I could know
The places in your heart where only lovers go

Cause I'm wide open for a little romance
And I'm still hoping for a second chance
And I pray for mercy on all those friends of ours
Who never feel the moment, who never see the stars
