i remember december

December 1, 2006

i remember it well –
the first time that i saw
your head around the door,
’cause mine stopped working.

i remember it well –
there was wet in your hair.
i was stood in the stairs
and time stopped moving.

i want you here tonight –
i want you here,
’cause i can’t believe what i’ve found.
i want you here tonight,
i want you here.
nothing is taking me down, down, down…

i remember it well –
i taxied out of a storm
to watch you perform
and my ships were sailing.

i remember it well –
i was stood in your line,
and your mouth, your mouth, your mouth…

i want you here tonight –
i want you here,
’cause i can’t believe what i’ve found.
i want you here tonight,
i want you here.
nothing is taking me down, down, down…

except you, my love. 
except you, my love.

oh, come all ye lost –
dive into moss.
i hope that my sanity covers the cost
to remove the stain of my love –
paper mache.

oh, come all ye reborn –
blow off my horn.
i’m driving real hard,
this is love, this is porn.
God will forgive me,
But i, i whip myself with scorn, scorn.

i wanna hear what you have to say about me –
hear if you’re gonna live without me.
i wanna hear what you want;
i remember december.

and i wanna hear what you have to say about me –
hear if you’re gonna live without me.
i wanna hear what you want –

what the hell do you want?
