Never thought I could, Never knew I would be loved this much.
Never knew I could be loved enough.
The palace walls are just a stage for shadows cast before tossing flames, and by their light, we see each other’s face.
It’s all that I can do to stare into your smile. Your ruby anklets, your glowing skin, long, braided hair draped over a bare shoulder.
You came to take. But I have only time in my possession. These palace walls are coming down tonight.
Never thought I could be loved this much. I don’t want to know your name.
Such power over me, I won’t offer up so easily. To set your name upon my mind would be to fill the lonely hours of the night with tormenting dreams and hopeless prayers that you might come.
Never knew I could be loved this much. Now you’ve come upon the stage, and the shadows on the wall are still.
The softness of your warm cheeks against my open palm could steal my soul away on the wings of a shallow breath.
The shaking of your legs is slowly giving me a hollow chest.
Your eyes are focused on my own. You speak my name. Your braid wrapped around my fist.
Your fingers are dancing along my back, I feel you tracing your way up to my neck.
The rubies are glistening in the fire’s light. My grip is fast.
Your braid has come undone. These palace walls are coming down tonight.
Never thought I could be loved enough.
And maybe I was right. After all, who could ever have enough
Once they know what loving you is like.
