Lyrics (unofficial)

[rev. Apr. 21, 2015]

[Knocking on a door] Come in!

Thunder opens its throat
It lets out the roar of rain
Soaked I clench my overcoat
And come up to see you again

Your smoothly sculptured neck
The trapped curving tongue
Your cage of a mouth springs open
And throws out the seeds of a song

They grow and flower
And hour after hour
Blessed velvet
You whisper

The world a slave to your look
Your shapely almond tears
Your marzipan skin in a crystal stare
Your chocolate box of fears

The load off my mind
The pointed beating pulse
Stabbing instead my thumping head
This famousness is false

You glow and glint
I blink, you wink
In ice polished silk
You whisper

You whisper
