Meet Me On A Wild Street Corner

Running away with love...
Meet me on the wild street corner on a rainy night,

When the wind howls and the midnight train

Calls it’s lonesome song,

Meet me on the crossing with your possessions packed,

Your hair tied back,

And tell me that your fears are gone.

Steal a rose from your garden,

To hold against your heart,

And let your wild eyes speak of love and passion,

And we shall tell no one of our plan.

I have dressed for the occasion in my finest rags,

To lay my soul bare,

And you may dress as you wish,

From cape to camisole,

Borrowed shoes, and your beautiful smile,

In summer or winter, you are forever fair.

You are always

Against the never of most fanciful dreams,

You are the vision in the snow,

The silence of yesterday breaks, into the fanfare of today

Graced by your presence,

You are the yes, against the stubborn no.

Meet me on the wild street corner on a rainy night,

Under the boulevard trees,

Kiss me and whisper my name,

Meet me on the crossing with your suitcase in your hand,

When the gas lamp shines,

Through the falling leaves and the rain.

Bring me your dreams wrapped tight in lace,

Running through the diamond and sapphire sea,

And dance until morning,

Upon the roads golden path with me.

I have bought a gold band for the occasion,

Made for your heart and hand,

And ask only that you wear it,

As I wear my love,

For the finest lady in this land.

We are never,

Against the always of the cynic,

We are the ebb against the flow,

The dawn of tomorrow,

Breaks against golden sands,

Because of the beauty of today,

We shall stay against the uncaring go.
