Deep Warm and Sensual

Mmh, yes,


Then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his mouth

Going deep South, go down, mmh, yes,

Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies

Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes,


He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,

But now I've powers o'er a woman's body, yes.


Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.

Stepping out...


To where the water and the earth caress

And the down of a peach says mmh, yes,

Do I look for those millionaires

Like a Machiavellian girl would

When I could wear a sunset? mmh, yes,


And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world

You don't need words--just one kiss, then another.


Stepping out of the page into the sensual world

Stepping out, off the page, into the sensual world.


And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes,

And then he whispered would I, mmh, yes,

Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers?

And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,

He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts

He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,

And his spark took life in my hand and, mmh, yes,

I said, mmh, yes,

But not yet, mmh, yes,

Mmh, yes.
