Maria McKee – I'm Awake lyrics

Like honey in my mouth, gold golden goin' down
I shudder with wonder at what we will feel like together

I'm wrapped up like a gift, cut ribbon, feel me drift
Petal by petal the sweeter the deeper for waiting

Our wild weather exquisite and violent could never betray me
It slays me, I live to die again in your arms

Hold back outside the door, don't touch me anymore
Hand barely touching hand

The full weight of you on top of me sleeping
And when you wake, I'm awake, I'm awake, I'm awake
