Whenever light shines on misery it can only make things worse. On the day we met she burned so bright my luck was soon deaf to my voice.
Well she was blushing like a sunset the first time I saw her, with her eyes so bright and black. And her gentle touch felt like a kiss to my arm with those little fingers of her reaching back and forth leaving blood colored trails.
Well she sounded like a symphony when she simply said my name, and I’ve been thinking about the first time she took my laugh and I don’t understand it at all. Whatever little hopes I once kept to myself sound and safe are now all deaf, whatever thoughts I once locked are now burned.
Somewhere in the front of the footlights I see nothing but her presence, all the sneaky things we could do in the dark but she always reminds me we’re playing the part where she’s letting me go, the only thing she’s forgetting is I’m so hung up on her I wish she stayed for long. Soon I’ll nail a ring on her wing and make her my little miss misery forever and ever enjoying together the hidden pleasures of the pain.
Lover, will you look at me now? I’m longing for your touch and even when you were at my side you streamed so far away.
Tell me, do you think of me now? As I think of you? For I could not have shaken the touch of your breath on my arm. I am sorry the worst has arrived, for I didn’t intend to do you no harm but I’m not about to expect something more.
Lover, will you look from me now? For when I thought of going away I went crazy I ran through the night into the emptiness.
Tell me, do you long for me now? As I long for you? For I could not understand what your heart would decide. I am already dead but I’ve come to explain, if I was a different man I could have read your heart and it’s been so long since I’ve memorized your face, but saying it out loud is hard, so I won’t say it at all and I won’t stay very long.
