Riad

I cross plains and plateaus
Reached the city walls and entered the maze
In this reverence so cool and dark
Refuge from the heat I let the day pass slow

In the evening you return from work
Floating through the narrow streets like tinkerbell
As day becomes night we make love
Fall into a dream the air so black and beautiful
Evening call to prayer

I came looking for answers
I came here to escape
I came to you to find somewhere safe

A new sense of calm
Your laughter rings out like birdsong
When I’m with you there’s nothing that I need to prove

I came looking for answers
I came here to escape
I came to you to find somewhere safe

You take away the suffering
You lift away my grief
I’m in a place I never want to leave

I came looking for answers
I came here to escape
I came to you to find somewhere safe

You take away the suffering
You lift away my grief
I’m in a place I never want to leave
