(The two young lovers arrive at Clive's modest home.)

Just in the door
I see you shake to shed the cold
I take your hand to calm you down
And take your coat

Those bitter drinks
Have you convinced
You remove your clothes

I speak so soft, my words are sweet
And I kiss you slow
To cover up
My true intention

And the feeling plays

Oh pretty boy, where have you been
I was so alone
So many nights, I tried to sing
And couldn't clear my throat

Your soothing voice has me convinced
that I've found a home
I'm seeing spots, my words are slurred, so I'm moving slow
To cover up my imperfections

And the feeling plays

You taste of smoke my dear
That;s just the secondhand affection
Come morning I shall disappear
Wrapped securely in your blankets
You say I'm beautiful
Another doll in my collection
The feeling is (in)sincere

Clenched teeth holding back my thoughts
I scream for your attention
You know I do
And I don't
Love Love Love Love you
My tongue is taking all you've got
I offer no objection
The feeling is ringing in my ear
