i will hang your smiles on hooks
break your fingers to hold my hand
lock you inside my picture of you
and keep it face down
i will know you like no one else
i will use your eyes to see myself
nobody else can know what you mean to me
our closeness will be legendary
our love will be hated
i'll take your tongue and make them see your kisses drying on me
we are one -- for how long?

    General Commenti don't care how cliché'd these lyrics may seem, i still think this song is beautiful..
    especially live.

    to me, it sounds like a typical love-hate scenario.
    the couple love each other unconditionally; "our closeness will be legendary / our love will be hated".
    but, in a love-to-hate way, which leaves the guy asking,
    "we are one -- for how long?"
