HE DANCES
A DANCE OF STRENGTH
CONTROL, BEAUTY
HIS MUSCLES 
FLOW
GLISTEN WITH SWEAT
MY HEART ACHES
MY EYES TEAR
I WANT HIM
TO DANCE
FOR ME
ALONE
I HOPE

HALF-SLEEP
I LIE
NEXT TO ME
HE LIES
BEHIND MY CLOSED LIDS
LIGHT RADIATES
WHERE OUR BODIES
TOUCH
MY HEART ACHES
MY EYES TEAR
I WANT HIM
TO DANCE
FOR ME
ALONE
I HOPE

AZURE EYES
BROWN EYES
PERSIMMON HAIR
BROWN HAIR
LINEN SKIN
TAN SKIN
NO ACHES
NO TEARS
WE TURN AND TURN
AND TURN
OVER AND OVER
INTO ONE ANOTHER
WE LOVE
WE DANCE
FOR EACH OTHER
ALONE

HE WILL LEAVE
MY EYES SHUT TIGHT
TO HOLD
HIS TOUCH
HIS FEEL
HIS SMELL
HIS BEAUTY
HIS IMAGE
SCORCHED
INTO MY EYELIDS

I CLOSE MY EYES
TO BE FILLED
WITH HIM
MY HEART ACHES
MY EYES TEAR
I WANT HIM
TO RETURN AGAIN
TO LOVE
TO DANCE
FOR ME
ALONE
I HOPE
