  • Our bed we live, our bed we sleep
    Making love and I become you
    Flesh is warm with naked feet
    Stabbing thorns and you become me

    Oh, I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

    Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
    Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
    If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
    Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away

    She holds my hand, we share a laugh
    Sipping orange blossom breezes
    Love is still and sweat remains
    A cherished gift unselfish feeling

    Oh, I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

    Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
    Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
    If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
    Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away

    She tells me things, I listen well
    Drink the wine save the water
    Skin is smooth I steal a glance
    Dragon flies are gliding over

    Oh I'd beg for you, oh you know I'll beg for you

    Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine
    Take a bath I'll drink the water that you leave
    If you should die before me ask if you could bring a friend
    Pick a flower hold your breath and drift away Writer/s: DEAN DELEO, ERIC KRETZ, ROBERT EMILE DELEO, SCOTT RICHARD WEILAND
