lyrics

Once a thieving scoundrel dared, me to steal your underwear
The silk did trickle down your legs, to your ankles pink as pigs
Father told me I was wrong and mother sang a Christian song
Their hurtful words they stung my mouth, and filled my belly fat with doubt

Oh touch me in this sharp light
I've been aching through the night
Thieving hearts meet after curfew
You know where I'll be waiting for you...

Lover love me or let me go, so this guilt can melt like snow
And fill the streams that wash my hair of what a thieving scoundrel dared

Oh touch me in this sharp light
I've been aching through the night
Thieving hearts meet after curfew
You know where I'll be waiting for you...

Open up your window love
(where I'll be waiting for you...)

Climb through my window tonight and cast us both in this sharp light
and blood will run like scarlet freedom
