MAY I STAY?

The night outside grows dark and cold,  
Beyond your window I see no light.  
And I am comfortable, It's hard to go.  
May I stay with you tonight?  
  
And your pillow looks so sweet and clean,  
I see your bed is spread deep and wide.  
I can't tell you how alone I have been.  
May I stay with you tonight?  
  
     And your beauty, well, it takes my eyes  
     Can't you see the way we polarize?  
     You knew I wanted you, it's no surprise  
  
Earth will turn till morning comes,  
And never pause in her cosmic flight,  
But our nights are numbered and they come only once.  
May I stay with you tonight?  
  
This night just might be unsurpassed,  
You know tomorrow begins tonight.  
And if we wake together, maybe you'll ask:  
"Won't you stay another night?"  
"Won't you stay another night?"

Beyond your window I see no light.
