Crack the shutters open wide...

"You cool your bedwarm hands down

On the broken radiator

 

When you lay them freezing on me

I mumble can you wake me later

 

But I don't really want you to stop

And you know it so it doesn't stop you

 

You run your hands from my neck

To my chest

 

Crack the shutters open wide

I want to bathe you in the light of day

 

And just watch you as the rays

Tangle up around your face and body

 

I could sit here for hours

Finding new ways to be awed each minute

 

'Cause the daylight seems to want you

Just as much as I want you

 

Its been minutes Its been days,

I remember all I will remember

 

Happy lost in your hair

And the cold side of the pillow

 

Your hills and valleys

Are mapped by my intrepid fingers

 

And in a naked slumber

I dream all this again"

 

(Band: Snowpatrol, Album: A Hundred Millions Suns, Song: Crack the Shutters)
