lyrics

Kissing you
Feels like falling from grace
And I was so drunk
I could barely taste
Tequila and beer
The longing and fear
Of the terrible word
On the thick of your tongue

The shimmer of sex
Comes down like a bell jar
To silence the world
The crystalline world
The arc of the stars
Shine frozen above us
Lighting the tear in
The banner unfurled

Icy clouds bloom
From the heat of your mouth
The crunching of frozen grass
As we stumble to safety
Drunken and numb
But sharp as the air
Can our pounding hearts wake
The good farmers sleeping there?

The shimmer of sex
Comes down like a bell jar
To silence the world
The crystalline world
The arc of the stars
Shine frozen above us
Lighting the tear in
The banner unfurled

All I could feel
Was the heat and desire
And that you would have taken me
Blackened by fire
In our thick winter coats
In the hour before dawn
We wrestled with demons
And I let you crawl away

The shimmer of sex
Comes down like a bell jar
To silence the world
The crystalline world
The arc of the stars
Shine frozen above us
Lighting the tear in
The banner unfurled
