Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Come on 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 thats so cold ?
Maybe Im just too demanding
Maybe Im just like my father too bold
Maybe youre just like my mother
Shes 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
Youve got the butterflies all tied up
Dont make me chase you
Even doves have pride
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe Im just too demanding
Maybe Im just like my father too bold
Maybe I'm just like my mother
Shes never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
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 thats so cold? (a world thats so cold)
Maybe Im just too demanding (maybe, maybe Im like my father)
Maybe Im just like my father too bold (ya know hes 2 bold)
Maybe I'm just like my mother (maybe youre just like my mother)
Shes never satisfied (shes never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (why do we scream at each other)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
When doves cry (doves cry, doves cry, doves cry
Dont cry
Darling dont cry
Dont cry
Dont cry
Dont dont cry
