An apple on the tree, so pluck away.
When the thunder rumbles right outside the door
May you embrace the power of the storm.
Let it run through your river of dreams
May you see the world for not what it seems.

The beauty and answers inside our minds.
A welcoming face so you feel right at home
With him around, youre never alone.

Just close your eyes, and listen to the flow
The rhythm, the beat, and off you shall go.
Let it travel through you with its harmonious song
He wont lead you astray. He wont lead you wrong.
So travel with me and get lost in the night
Let us forever be trapped in twilight.

Dear, or hello, couldnt decide which sound better.
I went for the informal because Im not trying to impress
Try to make it laid back so theres no need to stress.
I know I dont know your namebut someday I hope
Well meet on the street and no longer be alone.
Sometimes I gaze up at the stars and imagine how it will be
Where will it happen? Will you just turn and look at me?
Will we discover the meaning of love at first sight?
Perhaps it will take one or two nights
Laying out under the stars and discovering the mysteries
Asking questions that have eluded the minds of many for centuries.
Maybe it will be our laughter that floats in the air
That makes us turn in the right direction, at that moment, right there.
Our eyes will meet, and it will be just like in a movie
Well smile at each other, and youll ask me out for a cup of coffee.
Oh the possibilitie
