When darkness falls, we snuggle tight
and listen to the rooftop song,
as if our stillness might prolong
the aura of a rainy night.
It rises to its fullest height
and serenades a sleeping throng
when darkness falls. We snuggle tight
and listen to the rooftop song.
With peace abundant, struggles slight,
endowed contentment reigns; no wrong
can penetrate. Our love is strong
because, in slowly fading light,
when darkness falls, we snuggle tight.
