Sadness is hers on a motel bed,
Wild is his name on a sunny day.
Freedom dances her hips,
each time he withdraws
she dies again.

Failed resurrection in a shower
her love is dipped in water
and sipped like wine.

Screaming his face
he shakes out her name.
He knows
that even the beautiful dance alone.
