lyrics

I am starving lady,
Won't you come see about me?
We are no lovers baby,
But maybe we can make believe.

Through bloodshot eyes I spied you,
Through writhing bodies on the floor;
Let this smoke haze fall around you,
Let it suffuse you till you see no more.

And we can feign the feeling, don't you know
That closeness is two bodies simply together
Though in desperation or deceit? We won't fall
But we might breathe easier when it's done.

Last order's lights are flaring,
Two downed drinks are all we'll need.
Lend me you ear I'll slur sweet nothings,
With raw lips we'll kiss away our unease.

Through shot eyes I entreat you
To leave these bodies on the floor.
Let this smoke veneer surround you,
Let it suffuse you till you see no more.

And we can feign the feeling, don't you know
That closeness is two bodies simply together
Though in desperation or deceit? We won't fall
But we might breathe easier when it's done.

So come see about me girl don't you know
I've been waiting on your call?
Come to me through the glare,
We can smother our cares with skin.
