[HANSCHEN]
Come, cream away the bliss
Travel the world within my lips
Fondle the pearl of your distant dreams
Haven’t you heard the word of your body?

Oh, you’re gonna be wounded
Oh, you’re gonna be my wound
Oh, you’re gonna bruise, too
Oh, I’m gonna be your bruise

[ERNST]
Oh God…


[HANSCHEN]
I know.
When we look back, thirty years from now,
Tonight will seem unbelievably beautiful


[ERNST]
And…in the meantime?


[HANSCHEN]
Why not?


[ERNST]
On my way here this afternoon, I thought perhaps, we’d only talk


[HANSCHEN]
So, are you sorry we…?


[ERNST]
Oh no. I love you Hanschen, as I have never loved anyone.


[HANSCHEN]
And so you should.


[ERNST]
Oh, I’m gonna be wounded
Oh, I’m gonna be your wound

[BOTH]
Oh, I’m gonna bruise you
Oh, you’re gonna be my bruise

[ALL]
Oh, you’re gonna be wounded
Oh, I’m gonna be your wound
Oh, you’re gonna bruise too
Oh, I’m gonna be your bruise
