Softer - Confessions Of An Ardent Heart

lyrics

hear's to our embrace of blessedness and to forbidden places we caress. if you'll please let me pare away your skin. i'll return the favor with a kiss. fortunes fail like lover's grasp. and veins are raped by broken glass. to trace your bloody outline in the snow. and so it goes a child. a dream. a wayfarer proclaims that we will one day burn together in the sky. beside the stars will soon align to sign and tell of fortunes better left unsaid. i'll cross my fingers begging for your breath. crane your neck so i can see your chest where my ardent heart still rests. and i'll rid that chest of carnal sin so i can rest my face there once again. but dear my face is buried in my hands and stands devoting words and sentences to you. in truth dividing greens and blues to hear a dream. a child. a wayward subtlety. for once is see the casualty. the wanting moon. they dying sun that christless smile. and you've defiled the only heart that beats for you alone
