To Be Alone With You (Shadow Kingdom July 18, 2021)

To be alone with you
Just you and I
Under the moon
In the star-spangled sky
I know you’re alive
And I am, too

My one desire
Is to be
alone with you

To be alone with you
Even for just an hour
In a castle high
In an ivory tower
Some people don’t get it
They just don’t have a clue
They wouldn’t know what it’s like
To be alone with you

They say that nighttime is the right time
To hold each other tight
All our worldly cares will disappear
And everything will come out right
I wish the night was here
Make me scream and shout
I’d fall into your arms
I’ll let it all hang out
I’ll hound you to death
That’s just what I’ll do
I won’t sleep a wink

Till I’m alone with you

I’m collecting my thoughts in a pattern
Movin’ from place to place
Steppin’ out into the dark night
Steppin’ out into space
What happened to me, darlin’?
What was it you saw?
Did I kill somebody?
Did I escape the law?
Got my heart in my mouth
My eyes are still blue
My mortal bliss
Is to be alone with you
My mortal bliss
Is to be alone with you

To be alone with you
Just you and me
Now won’t you tell me true
Ain’t that the way it oughta be?

To hold each other tight
The whole night through
Ev’rything is always right
When I’m
alone with you

To be alone with you
At the close of the day
With only you in view
While evening slips away
It only goes to show
That while life’s pleasures be few
The only one I know
Is when I’m
alone with you

They say that nighttime is the right time
To be with the one you love
Too many thoughts get in the way in the day
But you’re always what I’m thinkin’ of
I wish the night was here
Bringin’ me all of your charms
When only you are near
To hold me in your arms


I’ll always thank the Lord
When my working day is through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you
