You were nothing but the fragrance of an old dream
That was just time playing tricks on my mind
You've escaped from the pictures that I remember
Now you come back as a bottle of wine

In your letters I can see your mouth was moving
Your voice was at the tip of my recall
Then your ghost could only brush against my t-shirt
Now your body shows up to take it off

Your movements I could match before your maker
I know them deep enough to paint them in the air
Life is a liquid and I stretch far past it's borders
I have a feeling you'll be waiting for me there

My city shakes its head at my wilderness
My heart has built a mind for itself
I found a little shelter inside of a sickness
And I'll be waiting for the icicles to melt

I wanna borrow the night, use it on you
When the sun goes down
Let's leave these rusted old folks back in the city
Where they belong

Children like little wolves
They go unnoticed
As the diamonds play their game against the sand
I found an ocean in the doorway of your body
I know the secret but I haven't got a plan


There was a cloud in my face
Now I gotta wash my eye
I thought love was just a strip mall
Baby you are a surprise
