Over The Rhine - Paul And Virginia lyrics

Spill-tainted pages of poetic prophecy
Tickle my interest and taunt at my fantasy
Gentle new lover, favorite friend
With hidden desire that bothers my conscience

Like Paul and Virginia!
Sit close to me on the swing
Like Paul and Virginia!
Sit close to me and I'll sing
(whisper my name, kiss me again)
I'll sing for you
With you
Oh, you

Cobalt blue vessels, clean same sex rabbits
Old movie romance and a healthy new habit

Moving in passion, resting in reason
With a strong tender poet who touches each region

Illuminations that shine on the river
Subliminal glances provoking a shiver

Palms full of mystery, fingers of magic
Greetings so glorious, partings so tragic

Like Paul and Virginia!
