Every Time I Close My Eyes (we’re back there)

The bitter taste of morning still lingers on your mouth
As the sun floods through the bedroom of our new bridal house
Your smile is the horizon line when the day breaks over France
Oh, every time I close my eyes we’re back there.

It wasn’t in the good book but I still believe it’s true
He rested on the 7th and on the 8th day he made you
In heaven they all held their breath in astoundment at the view
Oh, every time I close my eyes we’re back there.

I’m that girl from that dream
We used to dream together
Now I’m gone ne’er to return
Till the first of never

King Solomon told me truly in Proverbs 31
And I knew by his telling that I would lose your love
‘An eternal curse upon your breast, for woman is the rage of man’
Oh, every time I close my eyes we’re back there

The ultimate act of possession is homicidal love
The carrion caw of the raven has drowned out the dove
My hands are ever blood soaked for shame of what I’ve done
Oh, every time I close my eyes we’re back there

I’m that girl from that dream
We used to dream together
Now I’m gone ne’er to return
Till the first of never

The dead were walking in the open air
I saw angels in their underwear
Between the devil and the debonair
She’s gone from me
