lyrics

You were just like the old days in a dream for two.
We stole to the hillside just to see what we’d do.
In a dream, you are shadowed in trees.
But somewhere between, there’s a whisper for me.

How’d my heart get so willing
to hold a place for your eye?
If I were wiser a woman I’d
write you a smaller part.

In a sound, you’ve said what you mean.
You’re longing for this much, this much of me
For this—what we’d give up for this.
What becomes of our lovers if we let this kiss?
Would you be close again?

There’s a touch and you’re pulling me in.
I think the devil’s within me as I touch your skin.
If we keep our eyes closed, maybe they won’t see.
But I can hear them below us
shouting, “You’ve been fools!”

How’d my heart get so willing
to let you play in its rooms?
It’s forgotten the state you left them in.

For this—what we’d give up for this.
