you bruise me and i take the pain with joy, pressing on my skin to feel the soreness feel you again in the hollow of my collarbone the crook of your arm rests; i feel your weight even when you are away where you gripped me, fingers tightening, you leave your love as purple and red islands in the sea of my body little shards of pleasure become pain that i savor with the remnants of the taste of your skin, the taste of your limb my neck, my back, my arms, my lips give way to our desire you're setting me on fire volcano's erupting in my soul - Vesuvius got nothing on me villages are burning the top blows off i'm sure there's no time left it's too late to give warning lying here besides you, buried in ashes thousands of years will go by before they find us here in the darkness they'll put our bodies on display, just as an emblem - just to say: even pleasure ends in pain with one breath left, there's nothing i can say the world for us is ending bruises remain
currents well from the deepest ocean water warms below the ice and i, too, find i am melting in the night waking up in a pool each morning rivers running from my eyes, i think it's time you run for your life 'cause my love is dangerous my love is dangerous oh my glacier, you're so cruel could you maybe melt a little too? oh my heart, i know that i'm a fool i just can't help the way i feel for you the way i feel for you, oh i'd drown the world for you when the water fills every hole and the mountains are swallowed, then you'll know my love how long do you think we can hold? at the end of the world, you and i will stand alone all the others drown a love to end the world, is ours
