Mountain Goats – Chinese House Flowers lyrics

The wax paper that I taped over the windows
Melted as quick as chocolate in the heat
And it'll probably never come off now
The windows look like frosted glass if you see them from the street
And the dim light that filters through
Casts a new light on you
It makes me get all misty because I remember something
And then I see your shadow
And I, I wanna follow you all the way down this time
I want to see what it is you're going down for
I, I want you more than I want anything
I want you the way you were

You were lying in the moonlight outside in the grass
When I heard an animal voice somewhere in the dark
And I saw a wing shadow pass
And just then the gleam in your eye made my blood freeze
There was something up above us
Rustling in the branches of the trees
And I, I pressed up against you again
I could hear your heartbeat steady, and hard, and pure
I used to love you so much that I was sure it would kill me
And I want you the way you were
