guess this one works better with music, but i'm gonna give it a shot...!


until you fall asleep


your heartbeat is drowned by the noise from the TV-set
my gorgeous nubile silhouette
you show me my limitations
patience they say while they turn you their backs
be honest and spare us your acts
and awkward social situations
my flower I'm trying to smile
to be at peace at least for a while
forcing myself to new expectations

i know that it's late but I'm not very tired
and this is a moment that I want to keep
i have to get out 'cause my body's on fire
but I'll lie here with you until you fall asleep

i feel myself slowly drifting away from beside you
and all the things that I want to do
and our continuous conversations
my lily, I'm trying to hold
trying to stay true to what you've been told
divesting myself of crude complications

i know that it's late but I'm not very tired
and this is a moment that I want to keep
i have to get out 'cause my body's on fire
but I'll lie here with you until you fall asleep
