When it's cold out there
and I'm folded up in warm sheets,
opening myself to the usual process
of turning you over,
forgetting you after you leave.
Go on boy,
It's good when the flow's uncomplicated,
like sunshine and smooth leather hands,
how you unfold in the heat of the sun..
I promise I'll smile,
like I did when you tugged at my sleeve,
pulling at my layers as I tasted your lips,
your life, your heat.
Go your own way boy,
I need to feel someone else,
unwrap myself from your arms and hunt
for wonder in the whispering wind,
see what's inside..
Get wrapped up again..
I wanna go as far as I can land,
to find what's underneath.
So get out there boy,
Swim all the rivers you can,
touch the sand and smell the life
in the trees they all ignore..
You don't need me,
'cause you're the man in these streets.
Now let me be the queen of my world.
Let me help you lay it all down boy,
And don't look back.
Don't think you knew me..
In a year I'll be someone else.
Even if I stay you know I'd be your stranger,
a shadow of your expectations
because I wasn't what you'd created
in your mind, an angel.
Don't you know boy,
How we can't cage this in?
How we can't transcend the need
to run out our opposite ends?
See I'm a wolf needing to feed...
you know it deep, you want it too...
So look long and hard before you leave boy,
Deep into my dark brown eyes...
I'm not your love that'll turn bitter
as hot coals grow cold,
or an epitome of your regrets...
I'll already be gone boy,
Somewhere out there letting our own small hours
unfold like a staircase to an eternity.
Somewhere out there,
