Keep Walking

(no subject)

our bed we live, our bed we sleep
making love and I become you -
flesh is warm with naked feet
stabbing thorns and you become meat
oh, I'd beg for you, you know I'll beg for you.

pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
take a bath, I'll drink the water that you leave
if you should die before me -
ask if you can bring a friend
pick a flower, hold your breath
and drift away...

she holds my hand we share a laugh,
slipping orange blossom breezes -
love is still and sweat remains
a cherished gift unselfish feeling...
oh, I'd beg for you, you know I'll beg for you.

pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
take a bath, I'll drink the water that you leave
if you should die before me -
ask if you can bring a friend
pick a flower, hold your breath
and drift away...

she tells me things, I listen well
drink the wine and save the water -
skin is smooth, I steal a glance
dragon flies "er" gliding over...
oh, I'll beg for you - you know I'll beg for you

pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
take a bath, I'll drink the water that you leave
if you should die before me -
ask if you can bring a friend
pick a flower, hold your breath
and drift away...
