chinese house flowers lyrics – mountain goats

the wax paper that i taped over the windows
melted quick as chocolate in the heat
it’ll probably never come off now
the windows look like frosted gl*ss if you see them from the street

and the dim light that filters through
casts a new light on you
it makes me get all misty because i remember something
and then i see a shadow

and i wanna follow you all the way down this time
i want to see what it is you’re going down for
i want you more than i want anything
i want you the way you were

you were lying in the moonlight
outside in the gr*ss
when i heard an animal voice somewhere in the dark
and i saw a wing shadow p*ss

and just then the gleam in your eye
made my blood freeze
there was something up above us
rustling in the branches of the trees

and i pressed up against you again
i could hear your heartbeat, steady and hard and pure
i used to love you so much that i was sure it would kill me
and i want you the way you were
