lyrics

Through the air and through the wall
We built a tunnel of love to call
To betray it now in the middle of war
Surely we will be pillaged by the skeletons that are haunting us all
Not the one to who can hear me call
The sensitive reactor

Without you it’s lonely, but with you it’s holy
I kiss the ground that you walk upon
I long to breath the air you blow
Smoke what’s in your ashtray before you go
Sleep on the walls where you eat and write
Where you call her name

But I will bring I to you,
And you to I as two can do

Will the flowers in the mail dry the chocolate in my letters?
Melt your heart
Or can we build a path that stretches down for miles
Can we make it straight and keep the focus on the gifts we made
Meet in the middle with our fingertips

I know your mind and you know mine
Instantly across the deep blue see
I hear your voice when calling me
I hear your thoughts and I feel your lips
That I would almost surely miss
The privilege of your crimson kiss is a laughing stock
A cryin’ shame and I will meet with you again
And we will travel on

‘cause I will bring I to you
And you to I, as two can do

Will you now will you leave me in this mess
This packaged maze of polite exchange and soul tide waves
The moon pulls me in and the water pulls me out
But with you it’s always midnight
And there’s no way out
