You cool your bed-warm hands down On the broken radiator, And when you laid 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, And run your hands from my neck to my chest.
[Chorus] 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 for hours finding new ways to be awed each minute, Cause the daylight seems to want you just as much as I want you.
It's been minutes it's been days. It's been 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 of this again.
