A love song
Blows across the sea
Right across the sun
Right into me

Wind of the ocean
You bring a potion
That foams around my feet
Where the shore is sandy
And the waves like brandy
Taste of love so sweet

Tell me little lies
Where the drapes are hung
Put on your teenage eyes
Put on your lover's tongue
Put on the convent chorus
Where the bed will list
I've got the blood red wine
I've got the vampire kiss

And as I fall in
I watch the stars spin
Down into your hair
And you suck the dark
From my heart
As an evening prayer

You steal the darkness from the day
You steal the darkness from the day

I keep your secrets
In the same jar you keep mine
And I take them out sometimes
The good and the crimes
And I study them alone
In a diary unknown
And I mark them with a white stone

And in the madness
The winter sadness
In this soft and windy place
There's your little girl lisp
And your big girl lips
And your wild embrace

In the night time
On a velvet night so rich
When I dress you like a witch
I punish you for something's sake
And I burn you at the stake
In the moonlight mystery
A smoky kiss to me
Betrays your secret history

Without your mattress
Your're just and actress
Who's all dressed up in white
Is it a game you play
For the school day
While you await the night

Under the raindrops
Along the backdrops
Of just another play
Is it your thrift store style
Or the way you smile
Makes them go away
Away from me

A love song
Blows across the sea
From the rails of France
Where you almost lost me
From a London street
The long Portland night
Through the Glendale heat
The Vancouver sky

Under the raindrops
Along the backdrops
Of any other day
Is it your reflection
Or your inflection
Of the words you say
That makes it all go away
You take it all away
You take it all away
You steal the darkness from the day
