Last night we talked for hours on end
And in the dark, things were easier to say.
We feared the difference between a lover and a friend
And in the dim light, it helped us find our way.

'Cause the daylight changes everything around.
And I feel I've lost anything I might have found.
It's hard to remember what it was we left behind.
But I woke up this morning with you on my mind.

Last night you told me just how things must be
And in that silence, knowing not to ask why.
I listened to your words, hoping I would see
That your answers wouldn't be goodbye.

But today I'm back to where I was before.
And I don't want to think about it anymore.
I don't see last night for the sunshine leaves me blind.
But I woke up this morning with you on my mind.

Last night I heard the words I wanted to hear
And the wine made them easy to believe.
But the morning's struck me sober and left me without fear.
Taken away the night and filled me with relief.

And the sun has found me feeling the same way I did.
For the night-time explanations can change the way we live.
