It's Early Yet

(from “Cut and Run”)


I can’t seem to let go
I can’t call it a night
It’s early yet
We’ve danced till they closed down
And turned out the lights
But it’s early yet
We’re so light on our feet
On this dark, dusty dance floor
But love has no rhythm
And love has no rhyme
It’s all we can do to keep up with the music
And dnce it together
One step at a time

You can’t find the words
To say what’s in your heart
But it’s early yet
And I should be waiting
For fireworks to start
But it’s early yet
A little too early
To tell you I love you
Though you look in my eyes
Like they’re burning too bright
Is it too mush to hope for
When you wake tomorrow
That maybe you’ll feel
The way way I feel tonight

But if my kisses don’t work like they do in the movies
If the soundtrack won’t swell and the credits don’t roll
If the earth doesn’t move and my touch doesn’t set you to
Spinning and stumbling out of control

Give it an hour, it might take a few
It’s early yet
Take your sweet time
I’ve got patience for two
It’s early yet

But if my kisses don’t work like they do in the movies
If the soundtrack won’t swell and the credits don’t roll
If the earth doesn’t move and my touch doesn’t set you to
Spinning and stumbling out of control

Give it an hour, it might take a few
It’s early yet
Take your sweet time
I’ve got patience for two
It’s early yet
If you come conclude
That a lifetime of lovers
Just ain’t worth the trouble
Ain’t worth a dime
And open your eyes to find
All that you’re after
Was here in your arms all the time
Well, it’s early yet
