Escape

When the moon loiters into the sedate night
when the quiet mist subdues the din in a daily fight
when the light suspends its vigil into a dark retreat
I will be waiting for you on wonder street

Since the day we met and ever after
with your peaceful look and nervous laughter
brought together by this mystical force
to pursue our dream through a destined course

Summoning the courage to break through the cage
of self-made barriers from a once callow age
driving through that fog in body and spirit
I will be waiting for you on wonder street

With your smiling lips and your kindly eyes
drowsing me into dreams of those blue skies
drifting over the white cloud of our distant life
you and I will share that future with no strife

Spending our days in woes of separation
buried under the sand of mindless reservation
breaking out of the grip of this desert heat
I will be waiting for you on wonder street

Where the people live under the friendly skies
and the tall green trees the only high-rise
where the fresh blue seas leave a golden sand
we will escape together to that forgotten land
