I used to haunt this forum more than 5 years ago. Nostalgia & Alcohol seemed to bring me back tonight, as well as some recent inspiration.

An Easier Time

It's times like these
I know...
I should feel scared
But I don't
I don't need to see the future
I can't remember the past
I've got scraps of some memories
Not all of our dreams could last

So here's to those nights
I know...
With you by my side
All alone
No one knows that you're here
And no one cares that I'm gone
And If this night gives us our peace
I will wake you at dawn

In backseat ballrooms under small town skies
With rhythm and heat and bedroom eyes
The cuts aren't deep, and they scar too soon,
But we'll remember the night, the stars and the moon


With your hand in my hand
I know...
There's no more burdens
That I owe...
But, then we go our separate ways
And you haunt my dreams

In backseat ballrooms under starlit skies
With wild hearts and soft white lies
the wounds will heal and the scars will fade
But we'll remember the night, give thanks to the day

so here's to those times we lived
all of our lives in one night
with all of our love
in one kiss

And If this night gives us our peace
And If this night gives us our peace
And If this night gives us our peace
I will wake you at dawn...

I'm not a huge fan of the last line of either chorus, but tell me what you think, and I'll try to return the favor.
