Vanilla Twilight

I fell in love with this song based simply on the title - doesn't "Vanilla Twilight" sound lovely?  For me it hits all the right notes - I can picture listening to it at twilight sitting on my back deck, I can smell the vanilla candle burning in the background and my ears are full of this lovely song.

I fell more in love as I started to pick up on the lyrics - what girl wouldn't love having a guy write a song like this for her.

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere

'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light-blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia
Chills me to the bone

But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because
When I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone, I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again

And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach
Back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear
Oh darling, I wish you were here

Pin It

Yes! I love the song and the title! Thank you for sharing. I have to come here to stay up on the latest songs...we've been listening to nothing but Laurie Berkner for days and I'm starting to go crazy!
