lyrics

Our names are tied in delicate knots.
Strung up on Love's coarse tongue.
We're one word as far as He's concerned
And he's telling everyone.

But when it comes down to the two of us,
It's really more of you than us.

If you want I'll be your shadow,
You'll forget the one you had before.
I'll keep you busy even when you're dreaming,
We'll dance in the corner of your bedroom floor.

The motion feels strange at first:
Self-conscious and so rehearsed.
For better and the for worse-
Following.

You've got to move too fast for me to think,
You've got to let me slip out of my skin
Into something more comfortable.

If you want I'll be your shadow,
You'll forget the one you had before.
I'll keep you busy even when you're dreaming,
We'll dance in the corner of your bedroom floor.

Aren't we happy now with you in the lead?
With me at your back
Kissing your neck
Breath through a nylon sheet?

Be careful where you stand,
I can grow taller than you planned.
Keep me small,
Keep me close,
Keep me,
Keep me small,
Keep me close,
Keep me.
