Had a thought to myself that night
As we contemplated starlight
Won’t you come and walk with me
We’ll go create a memory

Face turned towards your fire
A silence hangs to be admired
As I looked into those eyes
I could see a thousand years go by

If you ever tire of me
Just say and then I’ll see
One kiss and you’ll be free
Whatever makes you happy

Till that day it comes to pass
We’ll show that love can last
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine
My everyday valentine

The irony leaves me shaken
Naïve of the world at nineteen
Times have changed we were mistaken
A song wrote a promise broken
But these words are not forgotten
They’re just thoughts of a time we were lost in
They will stand the test of time
And like granite in the sunlight shine

Had a thought to myself last night
The weathers change from black to white
Like I was yours and you were mine
My Granite City sunshine
