Chris Whitley
Breath Of Shadows

FADE TO RED
FEED THE TWILIGHT ROOM
WHERE SHE LINGERSHE RISE
TO SHAPE THESE SIGNS TO YOU TONIGHT


FROM BEHIND
FROM BEFORE YOU
ALONG A SEAM
THE DEAD AND THE LIVING COMING TRUE


BURNING MOUTH
SHADOWS BREATHE TOO
BETWEEN YOUR TEETH
WHERE SHE SING RIGHT THROUGH ME ALL THE TIME


STEAL ME NOW
INTO BREATHING ROOMS
UNDER STEAMING OATHS
TILL MY LIPS COULD TRACE THE SHADE BETWEEN YOUR THIGH


AND YOU TRAVEL
INHALATIONS
BREATH OF SHADOWS
LAST US NOW TILL OUR RETURN
