Sing to me my love,
sing to me why you love my voice,
and when you sleep
I will make you a necklace of bird songs.
Tell me my love,
tell me why you love my shoulders,
and when you are weary
I will carry you through the streets of foreign cities.
Confess to me my love.
Confess to me why you love my arms,
and when you are anxious,
I will build you a cathedral of lilies
Declare, declare to me my love,
declare to me why you love my lips,
and when you are vulnerable and naked.
I will cover your body in a gown of my kisses
Admit, admit to me my love,
Admit to me why you thirst for my whirlwind heart
and when you are desolate
I will moisten your lips with ice.
