my lyricsbox
You get the call on the message machine
It's 2 am'it better be important
Her power's out, it's a sleep-walk cross town
Rain's coming down, she's got candlelight and blankets
Is this an act between friends
One step forward, two steps back again

If you knew the art of distance
Would youlay in your bed
Or take a cab across town
You know it's raining right now
You crave her skin, well
You crave its resistance
When you wake up in the morning

And she's asking for time
You give in
She's the queen of light and candles
You give in, you always were a sucker
For a scandal

You ring her bell
She buzzes you in
Brush off the rain
You give her the umbrella
When she comes to you
Wrapped in her sheets
Is she beautiful
How you gonna tell her
When the touch begins
You cradle her face
Is this the betrayal of a friend
This song is from the album "Sweet Mistakes".
