Love of my life

I cut my lip on a jewel-piece eye
Gonna lick and lick it dry
Spit up blood, take another sweet bite
I’ll hold you down and I’ll hold you too tight

Only here on the sleeve of my heart
It’s the hand that makes its mark
See the memories ‘round my neck
Spilling out of my chest saying
Got to be the love of my life

I’m haunted by a holy desire
Put a shadow on an inch of your thigh
Heaven’s such a simple lie
I’ll hold you down and I’ll hold you too tight

I’m gonna soak my hands in milk
Oh the wails, some head like silk
I’m bloody, I’m bloody and dry
‘Cause your heart won’t sing to me
Got to be the love of my life
Got to be the love of my life

Through the passages and through the streets
You whisper to me with a breath of heat
Let’s be strangers in the night
The rest was silence there was no reply
The rest was silence there was no reply
The rest was silence

She's got to be the love of my life
