In The Air Tonight


Love is in the air tonight, my dearest.
Can you feel the power as much as I do?
Tonight, a strange magic permeates the air,
much like jasmine and sage in the morning.

I hold you close, and feel the power inside.
It envelops us in it's benign, kind embrace.
The magic is strong, and warming to my heart,
much like good wine warms the body and soul.

Feel the magic surge though our hearts now.
Don't you get a thrill from the feeling?
We've waited for this...now it belongs here,
much as we belong to nobody but each other.

Love is in the air tonight, my dearest.
It locks it's hold on me, and you as well.
Savor the flavor of the juice of the night,
sweeter than honey, nectar, or ambrosia.
