Melissa Etheridge — This Moment lyrics

I... I am watching you sleep
It's the promise you've made
One I find I can keep
Oh I... Want to swallow the moon
Give a smile back to you
Light your way
Tell the Angels they'll just have to wait

[Chorus:]
'Cause I wanna stay here in this moment
Can I quietly slip into you
You and I can stay here in this moment
Let the world fade away,
I just want to stay with you

I... I am watching you breathe
I am pulled into you
As you smash into me
Oh I want to give you the stars
All that I can hold in my arms
Placing them where you lay
Tell the Angles they'll just have to wait

[Chorus:]

With my hand on your skin we can slowly begin, I am free
Now the heavens have less cause I've found the best and I won't let them take you away
Tell the angels they'll just have to wait...

[Chorus:]

I wanna stay here in this moment
Make the earth stand impossibly still
Disappear in your kiss, we'll never be missed
Let the world fade way, I just want to stay with you

With you
