Crane Your Neck

I pressed my ear against your back
Not even a week after we met
And I felt your heartbeat fall like raindrops in a bucket

I used to have a pretty nice spine
But I neglected to give it a name
So each time I tried to straighten it, I couldn't get its attention

And I placed my palm upon your collarbone
And I wished to fall asleep deep in your marrow
As gently as a mouse curled up in a ball
As gently as a mouse until tomorrow

We ripped off all our clothes
And this included all our jewelry
And we ran hand in hand back when you brought out the beast in me
The parts that are dormant I wish to set them free
And in the clarity of this night I make myself believe I can sleep easily alone

But there's a hunger under my skin and it's gripping at my bones
There's a hunger like a lion's and it's ripping right through my bones

So I push my limbs all forward like a tree does in a storm
And I walk into my kitchen and I lean against the window
I'm as calm as a baby lamb that is being led
I'm as blue as blood before the blood goes red

And how it hurts even in the sun
It's a goddamn joke how we can hurt even in the sun

For a heart beats the best in a bed beside the one that it loves
Oh, yes a heart beats the best when in a head death becomes irrelevant

'Cause if you're dreaming about dying then you're not really living, darling
You've gotta be starving, you've gotta be starving for it
And if you're crying by the moon in the sun you better lift up that chin

Twist your hips, and crane your neck
Twist your hips, and crane your neck

Twist your hips, and crane your neck
Twist your hips, and bend your body back

You've got to be starving
You've got to be starving for it
You've got to be starving
You've got to be starving for it
