lyrics

The first time I met you,
the veins on your neck
were like lines on a map
and I fought them for purchase
(all day and all night)
with my hands on your back,
and I finally emerged,
wounded and winded,
and clenching your heart in my teeth
but the victory was brief.

The next time I saw you,
you were dressed for the dollhouse,
all skin and fine lace.
Your air permeated
with the smell of fresh laundry
and the hint of good taste.
On the tip of my tongue,
your name was the song
I'd been singing all along.

And last night you wore nothing but sweat and religion
and the smile of a sinner.
Last night I wore nothing but the boredom, precision
and good looks of a killer.

And under your skin, you are just like the dawn,
singing oh my god.
