cigarettes and whiskey breath
a wrinkled business suit, a red evening dress
she licks her lips - the shade of rust
living loving lust

it’s getting late the bar is closed
I’ve got a place where we can go
so lead the way if you must
living loving lust

onto the street, into my coat
give me a taste, just so I know
and through the haste we float like dust
living loving lust

peel away the layers thick
we’re almost there consume me quick
I’ll chase the hours through the towers we’re allowed
until we’re hunted out, shackled down again
living loving lust living loving lust

and in the elevator against the empty wall
she looks up at the mirror so she can see it all
I watch her bite her mouth - she stares down at us
living loving lust

the elevator stops, the doors slide open I don’t care
there’s no one else to see us ravaging in the corner there
her body wrapped around me tighter than I’d ever grow to trust
living loving lust living loving lust

yeah I could never go
if you leave me now I’ll never recover
the thought of you
I meant to do
and I could never ever find another way
