Inventing the Game

Windows open wide
Let the wind blow out the dust that's inside
Skin against skin
Breath follows breath
Under ambient light

And we'll play it out again
And we'll stay the same until it ends

And it's come on so badly that I can't remember my name
And you catch on so quickly it's like we invented the game
In the daylight we'll have to speak have to reconcile
Naked without shame and our clothes tossed off in a pile

And we'll play it out again
And we'll stay the same until it ends

You fight with your weakness
You love with such innocence
You beg me to lie to you
Before you get any sleep

And we'll play it out again
And we'll stay the same until it ends

Windows open wide
Let the wind blow out the lust that's inside
Skin against skin
Breath follows breath
I can't sleep tonight
