lyrics

I've been drinking in the color in your eyes
I could drown right now in the memory of your smile
You should know I'd like to lay close beside you tonight
Feel the warmth of your bare skin pressed against mine

I know there's more to life by love
and bare bones flesh has fallen from
Together we'll build love with these four hands
I know together our hands could build
A legacy to leave our children
Two souls entwined round one immortal strand

I've been drinking in the color in your eyes
I could drown right now in the memory of your smile
You should know I'd like to lay close beside you tonight
Feel the warmth of your bare skin pressed against mine

I know there's more of love in life
through suffering as opposed to strife
If love is a labor, baby we gotta sweat this out
I think it's sweat that made me thirst for you
If you'd pour out I'd gladly take you in
We'd mix like a river and run this straight down

I've been drinking in the color in your eyes
I could drown right now in the memory of your smile
You should know I'd like to lay close beside you tonight
Feel the warmth of your bare skin pressed against mine

You're the warm smoke in my lungs
The flare at my fingertips
You're the fire in my throat
and the sweet numbing of my lips

I think I'm done tonight
I think I'm done tonight

I'm superbly numb with love
Roll me up in your covers
Here's to you my drug
Your lover is a hopeless drunk
a hopeless drunk

I think I'm done tonight
I think I'm done tonight

Songs and poems from North Idaho: a little folk and americana, a little Texas country, maybe more cowpunk, clear love of the West, especially the Northwest, an affinity for good beer, some romance and wreckage, some creepy tales, a general distrust for the establishment, a hopeful outlook all the same. ... more
