Starvox - Alone & Without Wings lyrics

With the sweat still glueing the satin sheets to your skin-
You pull yourself up and draw back the curtain.
I feel the weight shift next to me upon the bed.
And I hear your sudden intake, so I turn my head.
When your eyes focus in the blinding light,
You see beautiful angels soaring by.
You see the angels flying,
Like a child's kissed dream.
Then you turn your head to me-
And see less than a human being should be.

So I get this sinking feeling inside my chest,
Cause you realize you've been sleeping in a viper's nest.
Though I only was trying my best-
I watch in muted horror, as you slowly dress.
Cause you've never seen anything as beautiful-
As the sweeping Gabriel's outside your window.
I'm not so handsome,
So I watch you go.
I watch you go.
I watch you go away.

I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.
I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.

I hide inside my black sheets and avoid-
The glaring window, through which you're visible-
Screaming with gaiety and lovely sex.
You've become the vampire upon my neck.
So I wish my putrid soul away.

I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.
I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.

Waiting all day just in case-
You come back.
But you've found a golden fleece.
That's so much softer than me.
So I wait alone.
Wishing you'd come home.
Wishing for your familiar, warm bones.

I guess wings meant more to you than me.

I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.
I'm dying for your need-
Cause I hate to be alone and without wings.
