I turned off the porch light

And peered into the night

Along the street was the sight

Of a pole illuminating from its height

Casting away the shadows with soft white

I watched the darkness fight

Against the revealing light

Without another thought

As the light and darkness fought

I walked between the two

As my heart led me to you

My chest felt tight

Trying to resist this plight

But despite all my might

You are the only thing that feels right

When I came to ask what you would do

If I returned to you

It was then I knew

As I saw the shocking view

Of moonlight brightly shining through

Revealing what lovers do

To the shadows of the night

Shadows of the night
