I think we proved it
my guitar sounds better in the dark
like our faces, all floating
souls protected I think we think better in the dark.

all narcotic all soaking
I'm spoiled by your fingers
pray let me spoil you with mine
I will be soo kind

fingers pressing it's the tension
of attention
shame to let this want go all to waste
and let the have-nots have too soon

yeah, let my fingers do the walking
yeah, I ripped that off
give me time
and that's not all that I'll be ripping off

this isn't all that I am thinking
i just let my body speak first
it's the forefront of hindbrain
it's the loudest of all my parts

under cover of my sorrow
I'll get it all and strike it down
I've come to you for holding
please let me, please let me in

And I'd write Love songs if I would
you know like Brian would
I'd compare you to a summer's day
If I thought cliches

but I'll hold you up in darkness
light the night with all your flame
if you let me
I'm gonna take everything that I can

serenade this blank brick wall again
the edge is blurring
the morning sun is here,
the morning sun is here and it is burning

time for me to be turning home again
thank you for the time that you have loosed to me
in spite of me
all I can say is at least it's me

you'd not know the thoughts here churning
but I'm in the habit of spreading my mouth oh so wide
not like I'd kiss and tell
but what the Hell
I'll simply kiss and stand and sing

and I'd write Love songs if I could
you know I swear I would
but I'm so angry everyday
II'm never done fighting everything


you are building wings up from my ribs
I'll give you everything that you need
fill my feathers with blue gas heat
I'll kill the lights and watch them shining

I'll watch you shining

I think we proved it
all my words sound better in the dark
that way you can not see
all of what is leaving me

I'm open innocent, eyes so wide
and that's a rarity
I'm catching light, I'm trying to make it till the daylight strikes

speak to me of Germany, speak to me of your fights
I'm pinned down here in the Christmas lights
I'm pinned down here in your eyes

I'm getting Looser in my thinking
you're getting cooler every night
I'll play the game until it's ended
If I could take everything you know I just might.

and I'd write Love songs if I could
you know I swear I would
but I'm so firghtened everyday
II'm never done running from everything


you're building wings up from my ribs
I'll give you everything that you need
my bones my breath my teeth
I'll write Love songs if you please...

to keep you shining, I'll keep you shining.
