about

Formerly known as Hold Me Tight.

lyrics

Here, the longest night of the year
I watch you walk away
You turn back and smile

It’s cold, dark
Red lights trapped in a jar illuminate
Barefoot and purple lace

All those nights a year ago my eyes were filled with candlelight and wine
It was borrowed time
We try so hard, but we only have today
Our bodies will rust and our eyes will fall away
So hold me tight on the longest night of the year

You, you’re waiting for some big change or nothing at all
I’m not tired
You can turn out the light

Wait, the dawn is yet to come
Steady as a winter’s chill
There’s ice on the window sill

All those nights a year ago my eyes were filled with candlelight and wine
It was borrowed time
The other shoe fell, move slowly, we can’t rewind
This moment will pass like a flicker in a faded mind
So hold me tight on the longest night of the year
