Silent Partner

no one must know
no one to call
but for the lipstick and perfume
there would be no trace here of me at all
blinded by your tenderness
crushed beneath your kiss
i'm your silent partner in this

a ghost in this room
waiting for you
but for the naked desire
that promises to shelter a love-sick fool
lost inside your wilderness
exiled by your kiss
i'm your silent partner in this

intoxicated on the violence of this fire
feeding the greed that burns my fingertips
suffocated on the sweetest brutality
and the warmth and breath
and whisper of a liar

nowhere to go
beg me to stay
can't you hide the kindness in your eyes
that leaves me bleeding
on and on this way?
blinded by your tenderness
crushed beneath your kiss
i'm your silent partner in this
