lyrics

I’ll kneel at the alter of your
Sensuous grace
And swallow every breath you breathe
I’ll drink of the wine-colored lips
Of your face

I’ll be good to you
if you be good to me

I’ll be the John to your Billie
But I don’t quite believe me
I look but I’m too scared to touch
Cigarettes in halves and some fleeting laughs
I lost my feet before I learned to walk

I’m a two-time dropout twenty grand in the hole
But I’ve broken more hearts than I can count
On my whiskers to feel if I’m trapped again

I could kill myself if I couldn’t be with you
But I’ll sway to your song and
make love to the mist, I insist I’ll always be true

When I need to be true

So drip that poison in my ear
And I’ll dream forever
Wear your daisies in your hair
Say you’ll leave me never

I’ll hold the doors for you Annie
When our house is burning down
Let it burn, let it burn, burn it
Right down to the ground

I’m clawing up the walls when
I can’t hear your voice
Rejoicing at the fall of the
Others who demand you

You’re the tower of Babel
The sophisticated snake
Wrap me in the evening
All my atoms I forsake

You may think I’ve gone
A little crazy
That’s ok baby
Nothing you say to me
Will ever lay me down
down down

I want to say I broke your heart
About as much as I wish you’ll break mine
In a fit of despair that’s purely by design

But I’ll be good to you
If you be good to me
