Temptation is telling
The tones of our skin.
Do you love me?
I love you, I replied.

Clothes are unravelling,
Hopelessly giving in.
Serenity slipping,
So softly through thighs.

Your cooing, your cawing
Is really quite aggravating
You haven't listened to a word I've said.
You're smiling, You're stalling,
You're leaving this lulling.
Legs broad and open
In the breadth of my bed.

You've lied to me, baby,
And youve lied to your man.
I can feel it,
I can smell it,
On the insides of your skin.

You're fucking, you're cheating,
It's constantly beating.
I'm constantly contorted
With colors of him.
Bedspreads of baggage,
I adore the way you conjure it,
And just as quickly part with it...
Avert and shut your eyes
To the sigh of my voice
Vocal cords rupture
And I think I heard you listening
For once in my life.

And this passion
Pours of pillows
We lie beside.
Do you love me?
I love you,

    Sorry if it's somewhat wrong!

    General CommentI wish more people knew more about this pre-Wintersleep band. I'm from Yarmouth, where they originated.
    I assume it would be impossible to find anymore lyrics.
