After your laughter like thunder 
After your skin like coffee and cream 
After it takes our bodies into the night 
After we've come to the extreme 

I want to lay down on your shoulder 
Just inside your arm 
I want to listen to your heart beat 
And your breathing on and on 
I want to lay down on your shoulder 
Surrender to your peace 
And go to sleep 

And when we've gone a million miles 
Made true our dreams with sweat and bone 
After we've built it up with our bare hands 
Made strong a place we can call home 

And when the light in my eye is fading 
When running water becomes too deep 
Finally angels turn my fire to dust 
And when my soul's no longer mine to keep 

I want to lay down on your shoulder 
Just inside your arm 
I want to listen to your heartbeat 
And your breathing on and on 
I want to lay down on your shoulder 
Surrender to the peace 
And just go to sleep
