lyrics

Here in the heat of the night
I can hear your voice on the night wind, calling my name
And I recall every word that you said
Your face so close to mine, I could feel your breath

And now I'm awake in the night
Thinking you're beside me
Holding me here at your side
Then I recall that the night was only ours to borrow
And I never thought to say goodbye

The white rose in your lapel
It fell at an angle, so I reached out and set it straight
It was only a moment
I'm young and foolish
I don't, no I don't think you noticed
But I'm hoping you'll remember me

And now I'm awake in the night
Thinking you're beside me
Holding me here at your side
Then I recall that the night was only ours to borrow
And I never thought to say goodbye

I know that your life is a suitcase and an open road
And there's endless faces and places you'll see
And I wanted to stay
But the car was waiting
To carry me into the night
And I wish I could have taken you with me

And now I'm awake in the night
Thinking you're beside me
Holding me here at your side
Then I recall that the night was only ours to borrow
And I never thought to say goodbye
