lyrics

Does everybody come here
where the curtains draw
their breath from doors
propped open by your whispers?

Does everybody come here
where cars creep by
in streaks of light
sent for saving troubled vessels?

Don't tell me I'm the first
Don't tell me I'm the last
Just kiss me into the age of stone
and lie with me here
while all the other ages pass

Does everybody come here
to leave a thumbprint in
a glass of gin
and a hairline in your shower?

Does everybody come here
by your ceiling rose
how it blooms a slow
tango through the nightfall?

Don't tell me I'm the first
Don't tell me I'm the last
Just kiss me into the age of stone
and lie with me here
while all the other ages pass

Don't tell me I'm the first
Don't tell me I'm the last
and please don't tell me

That everybody comes here
to your favorite song
and the record long
played into the run out groove

That everybody comes here
to inscribe their nom
de plume upon
a placing at your table

Don't tell me I'm the first
Don't tell me I'm the last
Just kiss me into the age of stone
and lie with me here
while all the other ages pass
