The Songs : Temperature


Music (1-2/03) Words (1-2/03)
*Finished* 2/03

You're getting warmer
I'm beginning to feel you
the cloud in this room
makes it harder to see through

Iím reaching for something
I want you to get there
but later is better than
the contrast is unfair

The heat of your moment, climbing and climbing
rhythm and breathing, feeling and timing
all of my effort is all that Iíve given to you

Lost in intention, searching to find it
leaving you thirsty, crippled and blinded
all of your voices are screaming to tell me itís true

But the ease of deception is... taunting me

Your skin was colder
until I hit your switch
I put my finger on it, yeah
and sealed it with a kiss

My temperature is rising now
at the same time as yours
you will fall and rise again
I will beg myself for more

The heat of your moment, climbing and climbing
rhythm and breathing, feeling and timing
all of my effort is all that Iíve given to you

Lost in intention, searching to find it
leaving you thirsty, crippled and blinded
all of your voices are screaming to tell me itís true

And the tease of your receptionÖ is haunting me

I am alive, I swear Iím alive
the closer you come, the more Iím inside
you dig your fingers into my skin

Breathe
need to relax
gotta breathe
undo my patience and see
what my answer will be

I know what yours is
ďcheck my forehead
tell me my temperatureĒ

Background:
Music: nice crescendos. I especially like the "chorus" part and the end is pure genius, of course. 4:30 long.
Lyrics: you can figure it out.
