lyrics

A rumor spread thought the night and tapped my anxious ears
The plot seemed so familiar but the characters obscure
so I came down through the swarming lights that pressed against my velvet silhouette

I kneeled beneath your window ledge I saw a room so sad and cold
Id never dare to come and scare you, just to accelerate your pulse
but you, you looked right through me and somehow missed this vagabond’s envious stare

Oh daughters of Jerusalem
I swear you by the sun and moon
I swear you by these ancient wounds
Don’t wake my love until she's willing

I was lying naked in the cold when your steel towers were complete
You made my precious love a fable for the bums down on your street
I didn't call or leave a note, I was playing hard to get I hoped you'd come around

But the records show you've mastered some complex words to break the spell
so that you could pimp my name to anyone until they couldn't tell
That buried beneath the pavement all you holy panics yearn my broken glory

Oh daughters of Jerusalem
I swear you by the sun and moon
I swear you by these ancient wounds
Don’t wake my love until she's willing

But I love you even more when you're unfaithful and distracted
I let you name my only son though I never really trusted
So now when were both lost I had to summon both the poles
to render my revenge
