This song tells the story of how Will and Shea met, and the moment he fell in love with her.

Restart

Another restive night
Like an eight-hour cyclone
This solitary plight
A phase I’ve not outgrown

A carousel of notions
I’m powered by the sun
But just go through the motions
And then at dusk, I’m done

A man like any other, who likes a woman’s touch,
Sex is my barbiturate; it’s always been my crutch.
It’s never really done what I’ve expected it to do
I’ve never actually slept a night until I slept with you.

Blizzard in the north
A cold, November stroll
I knew from that day forth
I was sheltered by your soul

Sense the heat surrounding
From thirty feet apart
A feeling so confounding
I felt my heart restart

A man like any other, who likes a woman’s touch,
Sex is my barbiturate; it’s always been my crutch.
It’s never really done what I’ve expected it to do
I’ve never actually slept a night until I slept with you.

An experiment of fact
To combat your fear of lies
Your exterior, I cracked
When you looked into my eyes

A time of give and take
Of your stories for mine
Knew a lot was at stake
This whole detour was a sign

Up against my chest, you whispered in my ear
Spoke to me four words I’d never thought I’d hear
Took advantage of the offer and kissed that dimpled cheek
You took everything I gave you, leaving me fatigued and weak
I’m indebted to you. Alert. Awake.
I’m committed to you. Assuaged. Appeased.
I submit to you. At ease. Asleep.

A man like any other, who likes a woman’s touch,
Sex is my barbiturate; it’s always been my crutch.
It’s never really done what I’ve expected it to do
I’ve never actually slept a night until I slept with you.
