Lyrics

If I could write a love song like a spider bite
Sing a few words make you grow dizzy
Wrapping you tight in the web of your need
But I’d give you my blood a transfusion of love
Keep you with me through the night
The gauzy desire the sweetest of poison
Filling your heart with the light of my loving you

I am watching I am watching I’m finding it
Hard to breathe hard to be hard to see
How you could walk away how you could stay away
Making me feel my love is like swallowing stones

If I could sing a love song like when the Sirens call
Come on my darling my seafaring lonely one
Skin your knees on my rocks I am calling you
Pulled by my voice the crystalline sound
A song spilling down from above
Drawn into the waves by a crashing desire
To drown in the salt of my love

I am watching I am watching I’m finding it
Hard to breathe hard to be hard to see
How you could walk away how you could stay away
Making me feel my love is like swallowing stones

Could it be you can’t hear me
Could it be you can’t see
Could it be you’ve been living alone
‘Cause you hide from the music and love
And your heart is a stone

If I could write a love song like a candle flame
Flickering to you beckoning you to me
Whispering call out your name I am calling you
Brand you forever singe you as mine melt us together in heat
Come closer toward me lie down in my light
Surrender yourself burn into me

I am watching I am watching I’m finding it
Hard to breathe hard to be hard to see
How you could walk away how you could stay away
Making me feel my love is like swallowing stones
I am watching I am watching I’m finding it
Hard to breathe hard to be hard to see
How you could walk away how you could stay away
Making me feel my love is like swallowing . . . stones
