Track 3 on Daniel Rylander's 2015 Release: "The Memoirs of a Poolside Romance"


Hello beautiful, it's true.
Should I be afraid of losing you?
Be strong, I won't be long in time.
I'm dying to find that finish line,
I hope you're there.

And I've never been so afraid,
But you ain't that anxious to leave, baby.
Bittersweet goodnight's by your car.
Awake, but we're dreaming;
The stars in your eyes, girl.
Stop time and press your lips to mine.

You first, say the words and go.
I'm dying to say that I, 'I told you so'.
Your skin, so close to mine pulls me in,
And I'll make a home out of your bones,
And call it paradise.

And I've never been so at peace,
To sleep with the tears in your eyes, baby.
I'll float down your cheeks with the tide, my love.
Saltwater dreams with the breezes of spring,
And death couldn't stop me;
Oh, if he tried.

And heaven's just a happy mistake;
The clouds are made of cotton balls,
I think I'll jump the gate.
And take this dream to where you often sleep;
The sun it shines much brighter there,
On the edge of Timbercreek.

Goodbye to lonely nights on the inside,
When the moon decides he's going to hide,
And sing the clouds to sleep.
And let the rain slip through their fingertips;
When I think of you,
You're my sunshine.

So come out and take me away;
To where clouds and their tears can't be, baby.
Unless we are safe and inside all night;
Your arms feel just like home,
I'll never be alone.
We'll fall asleep to the sound of rain on skylights.

And heaven's where your fingertips touch mine.
And every glance you cast at me, baby
Sends shivers down my spine.
'Cause I'll always long to see you smile.
So stay here and lie with me, oh darling,
Just for awhile.
