Holding each other closely
Our lips are touching
My eyes are closed

I'm feeling you touch all the warm skin
You touch all the warm skin
As quickly we breathe

Slowly, slowly we are breathing
We’re not talking or moving

Our banter, our innermost feelings
Our innermost feelings
We’re talking softly

I am sleepy and in love so
As we lie side by side
Side by side

    General CommentI spent a few hours on headphones and think I finally figured this one out, very hard due to all the echo, and added the lyric to the site.

    I believe the "five moments" relate to the five stanzas of the lyric, representing various stages pre-, during, then after making love. Thus, the breathing 'quickly' with 'warm skin' is followed by slower breathing as sleep eventually approaches.

    A much-loved tune by the Field Mice, but perhaps underrated given how hard the lyric is to discern.
