lyrics

I take you out of my drawer
Where you’ve waited so long
And what I’ve bought you for
His hunger is strong

You’re cool in my hands
Silver hooks, shiny black
And when I stretch you on
I’m an Amazon

Cause there’s this sense that I get
From the breadth of your chest
And the smell I inhale when I’m right at your neck
And I’ll do whatever you please
From up high or down on my knees

I take you out of my drawer
Where you’ve been in the dark
Folded and ironed
Three years retired

You’re soft in my hands
I can hardly stand
Up but I take you outside
And I’m ready to let you fly

I surrender, I give up my treasure
I’m through, I’m alone in a desert
With charms that apparently lack
I raise my white flag
And I’ll watch it wave in the breeze
From down on the ground, on my knees
And accept what you already knew
That you and I are through

You sleep, your leg against mine
Seems like not much time
Has passed since you were inside me,
Cells divide, now you're just like me.

I love you, I’ll love you forever
God help me please to do better
Can I keep you from roaming the streets
Searching for someone like me?

And so I’m down on my knees
Can you forgive me, please
For all the nights I’ve been gone
Leaving you alone?
