Tattoo of the Sun

I believe everything you say 'Cause you're not frightened The way I've been So I follow you Just in case you lose your way So glad you could let me stay around The chain link fence you climbed To make forbidden lakes our own Yours and mine And with the ease of sea gulls We cut the engines and cruise high In the summer sky Now I could speak to everything But there's no room for my voice When sweet feedback is Jumping through the hoop of your ear Ring there goes the phone And then you're off again On what the caller brings So I went and trashed myself at the bar Confused for nothing thinking you'd be there I'm so embarrassed 'cause it's you Who comes to take care of me Shambling home again with you to lead And it's not the way I want to go And I'm mad at you and I'm mad at me Talking endlessly, not a kind word to say Till your amber beads of wisdom come And I want to write it down Just the way you said it So I could keep it always I can't forget the smell Of summer trees at midnight Bending backwards to please the wind You touch the tattoo of the sun On a warm belly that once carried a baby for a while Then let the cracked leather jacket round you fold Red face saints monogrammed in gold And in this beauty I would not go any further 'Cause I suddenly remembered We can't live this way forever Idle daylight I've never caught you in a lie Not until now I feel somehow The passing of these days gone by What will you do when the feeling That you have is through I need to know 'Cause I'll never stop hanging on to you And it's times like this that I dread When there's everything to say And nothing left To be said
