Lights on the river bridge roll to the water's edge
Filling the harbor with halos
The night was cold and black when they were walking back
He held her hand in the shadows

My favorite
There is so much more to see
Why stay behind
When you could go on with me?

Icicle centuries burst into gentle breeze
Somewhere a curse has been lifted
She turned around in her chair and he touched her hair
And the universe shifted

My favorite
There is so much more to see
Why stay behind
When you could go on with me?

Olivia
Won't you let your heart come home?
Olivia
Leave those wild young boys alone

Out on the stormy cliff silvery waters lift
High with a wild wind behind them
Vaporous rippling like a drug or a dream
Eyes in the lamplight were shining

My favorite
There is so much more to see
Why stay behind
When you could go off with me?

Olivia
Won't you let your heart come home?
Olivia
Leave those wild young boys alone
