You came to me this morning And you handled me like meat You’d have to be a man to know How good that feels how sweet My mirror twin my next of kin I’d know you in my sleep And who but you would take me in A thousand kisses deep
I loved you when you opened Like a lily to the heat I’m just another snowman Standing in the rain and sleet Who loved you with his frozen love His second-hand physique With all he is and all he was A thousand kisses deep
I know you had to lie to me I know you had to cheat To pose all hot and high behind The veils of sheer deceit Our perfect porn aristocrat So elegant and cheap I’m old but I’m still into that A thousand kisses deep
And I’m still working with the wine Still dancing cheek to cheek The band is playing Auld Lang Syne The heart will not retreat I ran with Diz and Dante I never had their sweep But once or twice they let me play A thousand kisses deep
The autumn slipped across your skin Got something in my eye A light that doesn’t need to live And doesn’t need to die A riddle in the book of love Obscure and obsolete Till witnessed here in time and blood A thousand kisses deep
I’m good at love I’m good at hate It’s in between I freeze Been working out but it’s too late It’s been too late for years But you look fine you really do The pride of Boogie Street Somebody must have died for you A thousand kisses deep
I loved you when you opened Like a lily to the heat I’m just another snowman Standing in the rain and sleet But you don’t need to hear me now And every word I speak It counts against me anyhow A thousand kisses deep.
