F Chords

And now?
Now its just your breath on my neck.
Whispers painted onto the air that
keeps us apart.

Every now and then I forget
what the moon tastes like.

So I let you breathe me in
and you swallow my thoughts
drown beats of my heart.

You take my veins as
strings of a guitar
but I'm out of tune.

And the shadow of your voice
keeps me singing
melodies of the breeze
or perhaps of the seawater.

As your frozen fingertips
play notes on my lips.

Tonight,
we'll dance to the
music of our love.
