I'm not tired, I'm not sleeping, I'm not thinking
Uninspired, I'm just wasted on your love
I'm sliding with the rain across your window
As I hide in the sheets like a phantom on the run

Flesh to flesh, and I'm rising
Flesh to flesh, and I'm rising
'Don't talk, only touch,' you said
'Don't watch me too much,' you said

I hear my silence as it weeps before your eyes
On my black lace shoulder

Did you whisper?  Are you waiting?  Do you know me?
Unimagined in your unawakened love
I'm empty like a stranger in your valleys
I'm lost in the wind and I long to come to rest

Face to face, without feeling
Face to face, only stealing
'Don't give me your heart,' you said
'We're much too apart,' you said

I hear my silence as it weeps before your eyes
On my black lace shoulder

It's not over, it's not clearer, it's not daylight
Unenlightened by your superstitious love
I'm falling from this fantasy of feeling
I'm lost in the night and the rain won't lead me home

Flesh to flesh, and I'm sinking
Flesh to flesh, without thinking
'Don't think that I'm cold,' you said
'My love will unfold,' you said

I hear my silence as it weeps before your eyes
On my black lace shoulder
