After I kissed you
A sweet darkness came down
Fingers were searchlights
Leading the way down

We talk in fingers and thumbs
In an ancient braille of daily ache and overflow
Fingers and thumbs can never lie
We talk in fingers and thumbs
With my hands outstretched I read your scars from head to toe
No need to fake it anymore
That's what our tongues were made for

I see you feelingly
And my fingers have eyes
They search for you constantly
In furrows and smile lines

We talk in fingers and thumbs
In an ancient braille of daily ache and overflow
Fingers and thumbs can never lie
We talk in fingers and thumbs
With my hands outstretched I read your scars from head to toe
No need to fake it anymore
That's what our tongues were made for

Be my translator
'Til there's no more to tell
'Til our skin turns to water
And our bones turn to seashells

We talk in fingers and thumbs
In an ancient braille of daily ache and overflow
Fingers and thumbs can never lie
We talk in fingers and thumbs
With my hands outstretched I read your scars from head to toe
No need to fake it anymore
That's what our tongues were made for
