black moon lilith/
cheeks stained in kisses/
longing for you/
she's dripping in wishes/
tomorrow's just another day/
she's missing you

she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain

we garden a home/
the shutters never close/
the faucet's always running/
she built a shack near her heart/
dreaming on shooting stars/
black shoes lay across the kitchen floor/
she's waiting for you/
damp and divine/
smelling of bloody red wine

she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain

we were suppose to grow old/
toothless and in love/
rocking chair and white dove

she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain

now we're childish and alone/
stubborn in clouds/
above concrete city streets/
without a home/
without a home
