06. Steal Away

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

Well you’ve done it again / Got my heart in detention / Got my head in the clouds / Do you feel the ascension? / O blessed suspension, I’m floating on air / As the wife of my youth with your countenance fair / And your eyes lit ablaze / How I wait for you there / In the patience-less place between longing and needing / My heart starts to beating, I wait for you there // Let's steal away together / Cloudy days don’t get much better than this / 'Cause I want more of our jet plane romances / Let's steal away together / And we could find our own way / Away from down / Where we’re not weighed down / Let's steal away, let's steal away // Chances are birds on the branches are no match for / Soaring hearts caught in romance / Is there anything stronger or higher than love when it's true? / So true / And the glorious thing is that when we get wings / We can soar in the space where the daydreamers dream / Let's refuse to stay here on the floor / When there’s more to be had we must see what’s in store /// And if they try to tie us down to earth / And if they say we can’t go higher / They can never break joy’s golden wings / We will fly

Behind the Song:
"Recently I found a poem I had written to my wife Kelly back in college. I thought I would try my hand at adapting it into a song for her. The result was “Steal Away.“" - Jimmy Needham
