I see in you an animal trace
That's quick in your blood and deep in your face,
Mine has been tamed; I'm shamed to pretend
When I'm this close to your animal skin

I remember when love was something I craved
But I settled for less and the comfort it gave,
For living is hard when real love begins
And it leaves heavy lines on your animal skin

Oh, let your arms make a deep night for me
Enclosing my world so I cannot see,
I'll rise with your breath and fall back again
Cause you bring me close to my animal skin
You bring me back to where I'd once been
When I'm this close to your animal skin
