Pushing and pulling from shore to shore,

What if I were the night sky?

Bring you cookies in an old folks' home 

                   G 
Would you be there alone? 
  
         Am 
When the late summer lightning fires off in your arms 

                                  C 
Will I remember to breathe? No, I never will.

If I could convince you that I mean you no harm

Just wanna show you how not to need

If i were the night

Would you tell me all the stories from when you're young and in your prime 


Would I rock you to sleep 

                                                    C 
Would you tell me all the secrets you don't need to keep 

              G 
Would I still miss you
