lyrics

Honey's dripping from a watch face, ticking off against my lips
A first time for everything is embodied in her hips
Out pockets empty out of seconds before we know they've left
Kiss me just a little, I want to taste the calculations on your breath

Two silver summer moons, a graduation into bloom.
The sounds we utter ache like gravity holding off impending flight
And sailing through the noise, wave to wave, joy of joys
She is washing through the spaces I'm denying in the light

And I won't fight
City bright
You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white

Every heart beat takes a minute, swiping years off of our lives
She'd give them all away for anything to speed the pairing knife
Strike away all brittle pieces that prick sharp in the night
We needed them at some point - she can't remember, but I've tried

And the clock strikes dry
All puddled time
Stretching sweet above our heads
And laughing at our "Why?'s"

Don't fight
Glitter night
You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white

Morning sunbeam caught in curtain falls too short and hits no skin
Older in a nighttime, underneath, and deeper in
Do you think it's where we wander, or who we keep along the flight
Or how her hands lay while she's sleeping that's measured when we die?

I'm out of fight
Name the height
How do we last
So whiskey white?

You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white
