lirik lagu talis kimberley – velvet [live]

Loading...

[verse 1:]
he sleeps the deep deep sleep of a sated lover
he dreams the twisting dreams of a human man;
she leaves the tumbled bed and the warm bedcover
shuts the bedroom door with a gentle hand
she needs no candlelight when the full moon calls her
her cambric gown lies on the floor

[chorus:]
she puts on velvet like a second skin
beast without, woman within
she puts on velvet, cloak and hood
she knows what’s next, nothing good
she puts on velvet, fits like a glove
she doesn’t hate and she doesn’t love
oh she’s a beast without and a woman within
when she puts on velvet like a second skin

she stalks the deep dark woods like a savage creature
she hunts because she needs to k!ll
she scents the prey, and touches a brief, bright rapture
it never lasts, but she knows what will…
she stills; she leaps – and a neck snaps backward
she feeds till the hunger is appeased:

[chorus:]
she puts on velvet like a second skin
beast without, woman within
she puts on velvet, cloak and hood
she knows what’s next, nothing good
she puts on velvet, fits like a glove
she doesn’t hate and she doesn’t love
oh she’s a beast without and a woman within
when she puts on velvet like a second skin

[verse 2:]
she’s home to wash herself of the blood she’s wearing
her lover still asleep upstairs
he barely stirs – she slips in beside him, swearing
it’ll never be his blood she wears
so long as some dumb beast can be found by morning
the kiss which wakes her lover needn’t … hurt

[chorus:]
as she puts on velvet like a second skin
beast without, woman within
she puts on velvet, cloak and hood
she knows what’s next, nothing good
she puts on velvet, fits like a glove
she doesn’t hate and she doesn’t love
oh she’s a beast without and a woman within
when she puts on velvet like a second skin

second skin… second skin…

she puts on velvet
puts on velvet
puts on velvet
puts on velvet, puts on velvet, puts on velvet…
