Lovers in a Dangerous Time

Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by
We never get to stop and open our eyes
One minute you're waiting for the sky to fall
The next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all
When you're lovers in a dangerous time

These fragile bodies of touch and taste
This fragrant skin -- this hair like lace
Spirits open to the thrust of grace
Never a breath you can afford to waste
When you're lovers in a dangerous time

When you're lovers in a dangerous time
Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime --
But nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight --
Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight
When you're lovers in a dangerous time
And we were lovers in a dangerous time



Apologies to any Bruce Cockburn fans, but I'm providing the Barenaked Ladies cover, for the simple reason that I think it's much prettier than the original.
