Your skin on mine, my soft reply
Oh, I could die
But one step at a time

Maybe I’m just a babbling word
Or things I think I mean
We all long for the same embrace
And in its dearth react the same
Guess all we ever had was tries
Guess it’s all we ever are
But all I am without you is...
Oh, tries that fall apart

Oh, Spirit, Spirit...

And I guess I’m not surprised when I look in her eyes
Desperately afraid of breaking something that’s not mine
I won’t treat you the way I’ve treated my soul
This is my death: let me die it alone

Oh, you smile like bliss, and I know I can’t win
I’m burnin’ like a furnace, but I’m crackin’ like a whip
So I take to the trees, and I look to the skies
Ignore the Arctic tern that I’ll never find

Familiarize, destroy, remind
Oh, I could die
It’s one day at a time

So come on in beneath my clothes
And fill me with fragrances not my own
Oh, come on in beneath my clothes
I wanna be something enjoyable to hold
Come on in between my bones
And change the chemistry in my blood
Oh, come on in between my bones
One day it may be that I’ll be not

And I guess I’m not surprised when I look in her eyes
Desperately afraid of breaking something that’s not mine
I won’t treat you the way I’ve treated my soul
This is my death: let me die it alone

Oh, you smile like bliss, and I know I can’t win
I’m burnin’ like a furnace, but I’m crackin’ like a whip
So I take to the trees, and I look to the skies
Ignore the Arctic tern that you’ll never find

Herr, gieb uns blöde augen fur dinge, die nights taugen
Und augen voller klarheit in alle deine Wahrheit
