I breached the borders of your home
And everything looked as it should have done
Candle flame flickers and books unread
Round the crystal kept on an unmade bed
Flowers cut to shrivel and die
Like romance does and we both know why
With an artful flutter as if on cue
A gentle breeze brings the scent of you

I’m older than God and I live in your town
You shouldn’t raise up what you can’t put down
Those books that you pose with are more than antiques
When you search in the dark you should fear what you seek
Pallid in moonlight your shimmering skin
Is mine to caress you invited me in
The delicate architecture of your throat
Arcs sweetly away as my hands approach
Do you bleed diamonds
Do you bleed rubies
Do you bleed roses

A broken kiss and an aching sigh
Like a half heard end of a lullaby
A whispering chorus and a stifled moan
The jarring vibration of knife on bone
The stark composition of essence and parts
I gathered your limbs for a final dance
A silent waltz to your songs unsung
As the lifeblood seeps from your punctured lung
Do you bleed diamonds
Do you bleed rubies
Do you bleed roses (x2)

Oh you bleed diamonds
You bleed rubies
You bleed roses (x2)
