After your laughter like thunder
After your skin like coffee and cream
After it takes our bodies into the night
After we've come to the extreme

I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Just inside your arm
I wanna listen to your heart beat
And your breathing on and on
I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Surrender to your peace
And go to sleep

After we've gone a million miles
Made true our dreams with sweat and bone
After we've built it up with our bare hands
Made strong a place we can call home

I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Just inside your arm
I wanna listen to your heart beat
And your breathing on and on
I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Surrender to your peace
And go to sleep

And when the light in my eye is fading
When running water becomes too deep
Finally angels turn my fire to dust
And when my soul's no longer mine to keep

I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Just inside your arm
I wanna listen to your heart beat
And your breathing on and on
I wanna lay down on your shoulder
Surrender to the peace
And just go to sleep
Just go to sleep
