lyrics

When you first saw me, I wasn't right
When you first held me, used all your might
When you first caught me, I ran away
When you first loved me, I ran astray

Now we're knocking off the rocks that she's biting
Now he's kicking back the socks in her sighting
Blackened bed sheets on the loche of a riot
Now we ask her to keep quiet

And if you've got me
I'll choose a day
To keep you healthy
Use me this way
And if you're coughing I'll do what's right
And if you love me, turn off the lights

Louder tempting thoughts turned into writing
Raiding letters won't keep back her writhing
Hands are pushing back the bricks, legs are tightening
Grasping open lips
Well, she's trying

When you last saw me
I felt you bite
I knew you thought the god's on your side
Ran through the side walks cold and ashamed
When you first loved me I ran astray

Now we're cracking doors and windows
To the floor
Just to hear the shores colliding (I need it more)
And when the winds blows your way (my way)
I'll pack my bags and fly
