Dig if you will a 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

(Chorus)
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (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 (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
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride

(Chorus)
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (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 (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like when doves CRY!!!

(Chorus)
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (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 (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like
When doves CRY!!!
