As Long As We're Lying Here
 
Lyrics
VERSE
It's been some years since we said "I do"
We were so in love; nothing could get in our way
We love our children; we still love each other, too
But nothing stays the same; have we had our better days?

PRE-CHORUS
To make love to you, I never needed an excuse
But now, somehow, it feels like I do

CHORUS
As long as we're lying here, why don't we just make love?
The TV went off in the rain; all the connections are down
I could lose the tee-shirt; you could lose the nightgown
As long as we're lying here, why don't we just make love?

SOLO

VERSE
That was so fine; it seemed like old times
Let's go where online is off; where it rains every day
Throw off these shackles; head straight for the sublime
I love makin' love with you; let's take this all the way

Repeat PRE-CHORUS

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
As long as we're lying here...

Description
Short Song Description:
Not so much "faded love," but "faded lovemaking." Every married couple faces it. Here's one solution.
Long Song Description:
Not so much "faded love," but "faded lovemaking." Every married couple faces it. So he's lying there one night wanting to make love to his wife, but almost doesn't know how to broach the subject (aurally or physically). It's been a long time. Finally, he says, very gently, "as long as we're lying here, why don't we just make love?"
Story Behind the Song:
No back story. Just pure craft.
