you had a dream about loss
within the fruit there are worms
yet still a vow to dare goodnight
you had a dream about love

could it be you were the one
who is waiting patiently for me
to disregard caution
to feign deafness to wisdom
could it be you were the one
who is waiting insanely for me
to bind your limbs stoutly
to feign deafness to protest

you ask unhurried by doom
the shot only bursts forth heat
bequeath a sigh if i would listen
you ask unhurried by love

could it be you were the one
who is waiting patiently for me
to stare blindly at forethought
to disregard caution
could it be you were the one
who is waiting insanely for me
to tweak your cheeks unsweetly
to insist on concession

    General CommentThe anticipation is killing me, I can't wait for Women As Lovers to come out.

    I can feel this song more than I can understand it. I think that half of it is the singer's desire for someone to be so madly in love with him that they disregard their better judgement and common sense.

    Then again, there's always the BDSM element. "To bind your limbs stoutly/to feign deafness to protest".

    So, maybe i'm analyzing this too much. Xiu Xiu, for me, is something to FEEL, not disect. So many lines in this song have some sort of emotional impact on me.

    I can't wait for Women As Lovers. This almost reminds me of XITSJ.

    "This song is basically about there is somebody who I told myself I should not be in a relationship with for certain reasons and basically going 'fuck it' but now things have turned out wonderful from that 'fuck it' now."
