like a crimson tide

Written by: autry emanuel

sleep is for a fool why waste my time sleeping i could be loving you 
I shall give you all my love until you are satisfied
if it pleases thee i will give you my life

pain stricken by the memories of you when you were not by myside
like a knife in the abdomen i swallow my pride
why sleep like a sluggard when its your face i see

like the sun for the earth you were meant for me
i gallop accross the horizon to find you in the wee morning
without your love all  the day i go mourning

my only regret is how do i love you more 
more that the stars in the sky 
shh its almost nightfall as we lie

lie upon our bed together you and i 
like a crimson tide
