How can you just leave me standing?
 Alone in a world that's so cold?
 Maybe I'm just too demanding  Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
 Maybe you're just like my mother 
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other 
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
Dig if you will the picture 
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling 
Can you picture this? 
 Dream if you can a courtyard 
An ocean of violets in bloom  Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you
How can you just leave me standing?
 Alone in a world so cold?
 Maybe I'm just too demanding  Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
 Maybe you're just like my mother 
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other 
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
 Touch if you will my stomach 
Feel how it trembles inside 
(Feel how it trembles inside)
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride 
How can you just leave me standing?
 Alone in a world that's so cold? 
(A world that's so cold)
 Maybe I'm just too demanding  Maybe I'm just like my father too bold 
 Maybe you're just like my mother 
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other 
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
How can you just leave me standing?
 Alone in a world that's so cold?
 Maybe I'm just too demanding  Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
 Maybe you're just like my mother 
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other 
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
