about

On a hot night in London I couldn't sleep. I made my boyfriend at the time open all the windows and in the end we sat out on the stone balcony and just talked into the night. We talked into the morning.

It was the most amazing way to get to know each other like never before and I wanted to stay in the moment forever.

lyrics

Kick the sheets to my ankles
Open windows and the door
You pick me up and you carry me outside
And place me gently on the floor

As we look up at the night sky
And we wonder who we are
It reminds me of this time that I went camping with my dad
And he taught me about stars

This is where we spend our time
Sharing stories, sharing crimes

And we lie awake in the summer
And we try not to change
We hide away in these plain white sheets
Until the night turns to day

There's this moment after 2am
When all the secrets that we keep
Seem clear and we're all ears
Because none of us can sleep

This is how we spend our time
Sharing stories, sharing crimes

And we lie awake in the summer
And we try not to change
We hide away in these plain white sheets
Until the night turns to day

I once was afraid of the dark
Now I'm afraid of the light
All the things that we fear in the day
They keep me up at night

This is how we spend our time
Sharing stories, sharing crimes

And we lie awake in the summer
And we try not to change
We hide away in these plain white sheets
Until the night turns to day
And we lie awake in the summer
And we try not to change
We hide away in these plain white sheets
Until the night turns to da
