lyrics

Meet me at the station in a taxi in the snow
They'll be room enough for you and I
Show me the places that you know
Baby Broadway's all abuzz now
Chocolate's dripping down our necks
But we're running high like thieves
To steal away the time

And if the morning comes to take us, we'll hide beneath the covers
Sweat like ancient lovers in the savannah body heat

Now everyone here is gorgeous and young
and you, my love, are all undone
We'll bloom like orchids in the drying sun
Now everyone is gorgeous and young
And you, my love

Running through Times Square
Your make-up runs with the neon
In colored lips and black eyes
Like something Vanity Fair

Trip on the nightstand
Closed eyes and cold hands
I thought, I thought I saw you smile

And when the morning takes us
Everything will all be still
Yeah, we'll be laughing in the silence
Taking breaths to dull the high and smooth the kill
We'll lose it all in seconds, but life is for the present
And we've got the teeth marks to prove it all

Now everyone here is gorgeous and young
and you, my love, are all undone
We'll bloom like orchids in the drying sun
Now everyone is gorgeous and young
And you, my love
