Lyrics

enter the room, you nervously smile
we haven’t had time by ourselves in a while
I feel powerful here in your timid embrace
how familiar the fear on that delicate face

You’re clutching your dress
You stare at your feet
but I just want you more
when you try to retreat

but Ani, it’s only flesh
it isn’t such a cruel request
because love is
the special things we give
and when you cry and shake
you know it only makes it
worse for you
so close your eyes until I’m through
make me happier than ever before
now that’s the Ani I adore

When I study your body it makes me aware
of my fortunate place in our dissimilar pair
like the strength of my hands exploring your skin
and the porcelain frailty of your quivering chin

You’re serving them both
though the difference is wide
the man and the demons
never divide

but Ani, it’s only flesh
it isn’t such a cruel request
because love is
the special things we give
and when you cry and shake
you know that only makes it
worse for you
so close your eyes until I’m through
make me happier than ever before
now that’s the Ani I adore
