Marty Willson-Piper You Whisper Lyrics

Last updated: 10/24/2001 01:36:35 AM

Thunder opens its throat
Lets out the roar of rain
Soaked I clench my overcoat
And come up to see you again.
Your smoothly sculptured neck
The trapped curving tongue
Your cage of a mouth springs open
And throws out the seeds of a song.
They grow and flower
And hour after hour.
Blessed velvet.
You whisper
The world a slave to your look
Your shapely almond tears
Your marzipan skin in a crystal stare
Your chocolate box of fears

The load off my mind
The pointed beating pulse
Stabbing instead my thumping
This famousness is false
You glow and glint
I blink you winked
Ice polished silk
You whisper.
