The rain woke us up
You turned 'round and just did it
Good mornin', slow down
Have you remembered where you hid it?

You cried in the kitchen
We made up in the hall
I watched you get dressed
Those boots make you too tall

And we made each other late
'Cause I took my watch off there
So it wouldn't scratch your skin
Or get tangled in your hair

It wasn't long ago
We went on guided tours
But I forgot what it meant
To pretend my hand is yours

It's best in the mornin'
When we know it won't be rushed
So leave the curtains closed
And come back when you've brushed

    TranslationAidan was lying or joking. "Amor Veneris" means the love/sweetness of Venus, which is what an Italian lecturer in the 1500s called the clitoris.

    General CommentI just got into this band, because of the vocals Aidan did for Mogwai on "R U Still In 2 It", which is an amazing song for those that haven't heard it. I absolutely love what he does in this band though, his lyrics are emotional without being cheesy...sort of sexual and casual at the same time, I love it.

    Song MeaningI looked up "Amor Veneris" and here's what I found:

    "Some ancient medical sources give a supposed Greek verb kleitoriazein "to touch or titillate lasciviously, to tickle" (cf. German slang der Kitzler "clitoris," lit. "the tickler"), but the verb is likely from the anatomy in this case. Perhaps related to Greek kleitys, a variant of klitys "side of a hill," itself related to klinein "to slope," from the same root as climax (see lean (v.)), and with a sense of "little hill." The anatomist Mateo Renaldo Colombo (1516-1559), professor at Padua, claimed to have discovered it ("De re anatomica," 1559, p. 243). He called it amor Veneris, vel dulcedo "the love or sweetness of Venus." It had been known earlier to women."
