Steady wanting you, like I can see nobody else,

  How do I keep my hands to myself?

Dreaming in my castle, with my mind on you alone,

This must be what people mean by “romancing the stone.”

I see your other lovers and they might be big and bright,

But I’m the one whose jacket’s wrapped around your waist tonight.

They can love you from a distance, they can circle all they like,

But they can’t see through bedroom walls, they’ll never be inside.

Rockets landing in your valley, why’d they teach me how to fly?

Just to leave my purpose, and my worthlessness behind?

But every mile higher was another mile away

From your body, from your sound,

I’m coming down,
