"A Thousand Kisses Deep" lyrics

A Thousand Kisses Deep

The ponies run
The girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while
And then it's done
Your little winning streak
And summoned now
To deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life
As if it's real
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks
I'm getting fixed
I'm back on Boogie Street
You lose your grip
And then you slip
Into the Masterpiece
And maybe I
Had miles to drive
And promises to keep
You ditch it all
To stay alive
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when
The night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up
Our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep

Confined to sex
We pressed against
The limits of the sea
I saw there were
No oceans left
For scavengers like me
I made it to
The forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet
And then consented
To be wrecked
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks
I'm getting fixed
I'm back on Boogie Street
I guess they won't
Exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep
And quiet is
The thought of you
The file on you complete
Except what we
Forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when
The night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up
Our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep

The ponies run
The girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while
And then it's done
Your little winning streak
And summoned now
To deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life
As if it's real
A thousand kisses deep
