lyrics

Oh, my darling, you lie dreaming in the daylight
While the sun shines through the shutters of my room.
I'm just like a man possessed by the beauty in your chest
As you rise and fall like tides turned by the moon.
You rise and fall like tides turned by the moon.

I once daydreamed of a doe-eyed dark-haired beauty
With skin as fair as milk in a kitten's bowl.
With a smile that said “Hello”, and a laugh to melt the snow.
Well, I swear you seemed to spring right from my soul.
I swear you seemed to spring right from my soul.

I thirst for love that's wild and not possessing
For a tame and slavish love is never true.
Fuck our parents and the priests, I want to love you just like Keats:
Bright Star, were I as steadfast as you.
Bright Star, were I as steadfast as you.

Do you remember when we'd make love 'til the morning?
Do you remember when we'd lay in bed all day?
Do you remember when we'd park outside the diner in the dark
And kiss like it was Armageddon day?
Now kiss me like it's Armageddon day.
