Until I Have You
Little girl with flying pigtail on bouncy tractor at playground

I will float your name upon the night

And founder deep in dripping-desert sheets

Trust in signs and omens, second sight

And walk oblivious through ragged streets


Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until you're mine


Pleasure’s wasted, pain is but a cry

Barely heard above the bedlam in my head

Fever, chill and still the days go by


I will conjure you with every breath


-refrain-


Persuade the rain to drop my name into your hand

The road to lead you to me by design

Charge the sun to ease you down into my arms

The same one blesses your sky, burns in mine


Captured like quicksilver, I am doomed

To this cruel elation, there's no cure, no cure

Until, beneath a green electric moon

A crazy wind unfurls you to my door



Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until you're mine

...yeah

Until I Have You

I will float your name upon the night

And founder deep in dripping-desert sheets

Trust in signs and omens, second sight

And walk oblivious through ragged streets


Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until you're mine


Pleasure’s wasted, pain is but a cry

Barely heard above the bedlam in my head

Fever, chill and still the days go by


I will conjure you with every breath


-refrain-


Persuade the rain to drop my name into your hand

The road to lead you to me by design

Charge the sun to ease you down into my arms

The same one blesses your sky, burns in mine


Captured like quicksilver, I am doomed

To this cruel elation, there's no cure, no cure

Until, beneath a green electric moon

A crazy wind unfurls you to my door



Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until I have you

Until you're mine

...yeah
