Recitation Lyrics

You came to me this morning

And you handled me like meat

You'd have to be a man to know

How good that feels, how sweet

My mirror twin, my next of kin

I'd know you in my sleep

And who but you would take me in

A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened

Like a lily to the heat

You see I'm just another snowman

Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love

His secondhand physique

With all he is and all he was

A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me

I know you had to cheat

To pose all hot and high

Behind the veils of sheer deceit

Our perfect porn aristocrat

So elegant and cheap

I'm old but I'm still into that

A thousand kisses deep

I'm good at love, I'm good at hate

It's in between I freeze

Been working out but it's too late

(It's been too late for years)

But you look good, you really do

They love you on the street

If you were here I'd kneel for you

A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin

Got something in my eye

A light that doesn't need to live

And doesn't need to die

A riddle in the book of love

Obscure and obsolete

And witnessed here in time and blood

A thousand kisses deep

But I'm still working with the wine

Still dancing cheek to cheek

The band is playing Auld Lang Syne

But the heart will not retreat

I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray

I never had their sweet

But once or twice they let me play

A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened

Like a lily to the heat

You see I'm just another snowman

Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love

His secondhand physique

With all he is and all he was

A thousand kisses deep

But you don't need to hear me now

And every word I speak

It counts against me anyhow

A thousand kisses deep
