Then It's Always Within These Hours When The Sun Sets
'Member when the pixies stole my slumber?
The fog was lovelorn and I was wrapped around a thought of you
I was becoming a mountain and viscous moss came branding my cheek

So you could ravage my fears through threads of cooing
You could settle like the rain inside my heart

But come, oh do come, my human butterfly;
Fill with love this empty house, this empty mouth
It can be so sad to shimmy-shake
hips
all alone

No, I don’t feel miserable on my own
But this house is so empty - big silence
Funny how faith in a happy ending can make a lonely life fucking romantic

So you could ravage my fears 'long threads of cooing
You could settle like the rain inside my heart

Just come, do come, my human butterfly;
Fill with love this empty house, this empty mouth
It can be real sad to watch my hips shake all alone

Is this what you wanted..? This is what you wanted, isn't it..?

And so my skin shimmers beneath the lilac sky
Then it's always within these hours when the sun sets, yeah,
Within these hours when the sun sets...
