I, I am watching you sleep
It's the promise you made
What I find I can keep
Oh I want to swallow the moon
Give a smile back to you
Lighting your way
Tell the angels they'll just have to wait

[Chorus]
Cause I want to stay here in this moment
Can I quietly slip into you
You and I can stay here in this moment
Let the world fade away
I just want to stay with you

I, I am watching you breathe
I am pulled into you
As you smash into me
Oh I want to give you the stars
All that I can hold in my arms
Placing them where you lay
Tell the angels they'll just have to wait

With my hand on your skin
We can slowly begin
I am free
Now the heavens have less 
Cause I found the best
And I won't let them take you away
Tell the angels they'll just have to wait

I want to stay here in this moment
Make the earth stand impossibly still
Disappear in your kiss
We'll never be missed
Let the world fade away
I just want to stay
With you
