And wrap me in your scented heats
Trap me gently in your passing ghosts
and call your victories my defeats.
Take his name when you touch my face
Leave me lying in his place
Say "darling, you were always mine.
All you needed was a little time."
Give me one night of secret love
And tear my skin when I feel most vain
Let this yearning turn to dust
If it isn't the right kind of pain.
Then I guess I'll live with my mistakes
And we'll both sleep in this bed I've made
And when the time has passed, I'll think of when we fell.
And I'll cry, yes I'll cry. "My Lover, Goodbye.
At least,just once, I could say I knew you well."
