lyrics

your hands are on my throat
my fingers on your lips
i see you’re out for blood
i can taste it on your skin

i’ve fought for 40 days
you’ve wrestled for 40 nights
in this desert of my pride
i can’t tell wrong from right

i am drawn
tense and taut
my rage pointed
fletched against my heart

i’m aimed to the sun
bright and hot
he’s bearing down
waiting for my love

our sweat has turned to salt
the salt has turned to tears
it’s bitter in the mouths
of lovers gripped by fears

the tears have turned to moats
encircling our dreams
dividing mine from yours
yet still you make your siege

too late to turn back
too soon to give up
i’ll die before you hear me say
that i’ve had enough
