A precious kiss from your luscious lips
Is more than any man can stand
A glimpse underneath your silver skirt is a miracle
The scent of your skin, your ivory skin
Is the thing one would kill a man in an instant
To get close to

But I'll wait for the day you will see
You can't say no to me

One more is a life span
And I would give anything
To be the one that tears off your wings

    General Commentwhy is this song without a comment? this is perhaps one of my favourite love songs ever written. I can listen to it two weeks long, without getting bored because it´s so minimalistic and it really says everything in only few sentences.
    But on the other side, ´t´s really not hard to understand. I would say it´s simply about a guy who admires this precious girl, he wants to be with. but he is patient and will wait till she sees in him everything he sees in her. BUT on the other side,
    it could be about an innocent young girl that just isn´t ready to sleep with him. "And I would give anything to be the one that tears of your wings" But the second meaning is not my favourite,it´s to plain.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy in particular and his desire for the girl yet it's not only sexual desire, it's more than that. It's more emotional than anything. But he's not the only one who thinks of the girl in that way, she's sort of the girl that could make any guy drool. But what he wants more than anything is for the girl to feel the way he feels about her.

    "One more is a life span
    And I would give anything
    To be the one that tears off your wings "

    He envisions her as an angel and what he says "to be the one that tears off your wings", he wants to know that the girl he thinks so highly off, is actually human and can fall in love.

    The song is simple yet so complicated.
