Every Night

I once wished I was perfect
From this I’ve recovered nicely
Now that I have you
Now that you have me
Perfection is not even an issue
Not even a thought crossing minds
When we talk
When we listen
When we make plans
Every night

We are both shy, self-conscious
We hardly remember that
When it’s just us
When all we see are each other
There’s no point
Not an inkling of reason why
When we chat
When we giggle
When we hope for tomorrow
Every night

You may have thought of me
As farfetched
And I you, likewise
Look at us now though
Like star-crossed lovers
Cliche Bonnie and Clyde
We have us
That’s enough
For us both to fall asleep with
Every night
