"Breathless"

[ from the album "Timelord" (1993) ]

Lyrics

Over the moon for now
Only because you're near
Though there are tears on the way
Over the moon for now

Soft is the flesh I cling to
Warm the caress of your mouth
Silk is my touch as I swing you
Over the moon for now

Your starring role is forever
If only you'll stay as you are
Breathless at the threshold of pleasure
Soon we must fall but it's okay so far

If there's a method in madness
If there's a heaven above
Feel my caress as it lingers
Over the moon for now

Though there are no happy endings
Though hope disappeared long ago
There are clouds at the end of the rainbows
Over the moon for now

This is my one consolation
To work for the sweat on your brow
It's the sweetest, most fleeting sensation
Over the moon for now

If there's a method in madness
If there's a heaven above
Feel my caress as it lingers
Over the moon for love

Your starring role is forever
If only you'll stay as you are
Breathless at the threshold of pleasure
Soon we must fall, but it's okay so far

Your starring role is forever
If only you'll stay as you are
Breathless at the threshold of pleasure
Over the moon for now
