When Doves Cry

Play

Dig if you will the 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

How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just to demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

So you can 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

you just leave me standing
Alone in a world it's so cold (world is so cold)
Maybe I'm just to demanding (maybe babe)
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold (like my father, you know it's true)
Maybe you're just like my mother (maybe i'm just like my mother)
She's never satisfied (she is never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (why?)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
