Lyrics

Your Poison, My Waltz

Written By: Timothy David

The light reflects off your pale midnight body
revealing your perfect skin
Evokes carnal feelings within
Feelings of sin

I'm watching you slowly undress your hair down it pools around your shoulders and neck
Just the way you move makes me sweat
so put your body on me and make me

Feel all the loving ways you can heal
The poisons in my heart I can hear the waltz start

My hearts pounding harder as I grow eager
for the sweetness of your lips
the touch of your finger tips
the curves of your hips

So purse your lips and kiss me deeply like a lover should whisper into my ear
The beautiful things I want to hear
put your lips on me and let me

Feel all the loving ways you can heal
The poisons in my heart I can hear the waltz start

With a smirk, such a tease you draw the curtains
refuse to let the light in
A tiny ritual begins
Our ritual of sin

Is it any coincidence that since we met I can't seem to concentrate or even sleep
Temptress you've got me so deep
put your heart to me and let me

Feel all the loving ways you can heal
The poisons in my heart I can hear the waltz start

Your Heart, What About Mine?

Written By: Timothy David

Driving down weathered provincial roads
Getting farther away, farther from our homes
To be a stranger in a new place
To lose the restraints of our old ways
So we can smile, fit in somewhere now

It's almost dark, the sun sets beyond the road
We follow it, it's reappering as we go
To watch the sun set in your eyes
The headlights illuminate street signs
Soon we'll smile, fit in somewhere now

But that all that changed when you got bored
You're looking for a brand new start
The same old trick you pulled that day
Crying about how I broke your heart
What about mine

Since you left nothings been the same
no more sleepless nights listening to the rain
To be happy once again
To never have to pretend
That we're fine, that I can smile now

Then in you come all teary eyed
You're looking for a brand new start
The same old shit you pulled that day
Crying about how I broke your heart
What about mine

Us Reckless Dreamers

Written By: Timothy David

I always wanted to know you, since I was a child
I have this box full of stuff i've been saving to show you
It's contents i've almost spoiled by telling everyone
I often wonder if we're at all alike

Would know me if you saw me
Would you recognize my face
Would you break down and cry
Would you even care

Do you cry when you hear lullabys
Do you dream about the sky

Sleepless winter nights staring off into the snow filled
Sky Watching it melt onto the window and drip down the sill

Would know me if you saw me
Would you recognize my face
Would you break down and cry
Would you even care

Do you cry when you hear lullabys
Do you dream about the sky

My eyes slowly close as I fall asleep and
Choke on the dream of ever knowing or loving you
