You can keep
your promises at midnight,
words you share
just hang in the air.

your promises by moonlight,
what you say
at the break of day,
matters much more to me.

You can count
your blessings in a heartbeat.
Look to the sky,
a star flying high.

your blessings in a backstreet,
right by my side
along for the ride,
what do you want to be?

A face, a lover, a one-night stand?
A bass, a drummer, a one-man band?

You can save
your message on a mobile.

your message in the meanwhile.
