Lyrics

Shadowlover

Written By: Aja Lynne

The lights are dim, our senses dulled by the hazy smoke,
And the lazy chatter and endless clatter threatens to choke.
The gulls cannot be heard in here, though the night is torn,
And the bitter salt sea-wind creeps in with the morn.

I see the people in this place, their laughter so lewd,
There is no magic in their eyes, cynical and crude.
Even the shrewd voice of the portly mistress’s call
Cannot disturb the silence that holds me in thrall.

And she can’t see where I end and you begin, my love.
The hazy smoke is curling from above.

And around me lurks my shadowlover, captured by mine eyes.
Brushing, hushing, tiny cries. I feel you rise.
Shadow wisps like fingers entwining my hair,
Smoke and burning fire wrap round me like a snare.

And they can’t see where I end and you begin, my love.
The hazy smoke is curling from above.

As the rain begins to beat heavy on the roof,
This counter-rhythm in my breast beats as a truth.
You curl yourself around me dear, my breath syncopates.
This secret thrill holds me still. I reciprocate.

And we can’t see where I end and you begin, my love.
The hazy smoke is curling from above.

Devil In My Pocket

Written By: Aja Lynne

I saw you walking,
We started talking,
My heart was pumping,
My feet were jumping,

But how can I love you?

I saw you thinking,
We started drinking,
My hips were swaying,
The band was playing,

But how can I love you
When there’s a devil in my pocket
And it’s eating up my soul piece by piece?

Oh, it’s eating!
