Forever For You

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album Dim Stars, Bright Sky (2002).

One red drop of California wine
On a white tablecloth across from you
Slipping your hand under mine
Your voice was low and soft but the words were clear
And clean as starched white sheets, another drop
Red on white in a blurry light
Drink this blood of my veins
You don't understand, I'd cut off my hands
If they offend thee
I can't see why we can't see eye to eye
And it makes me want to die

We're not united
But we'll stand for each other
When the whole world let us down
No red, white, and blue
No more underground
Standing up for you
Forever for you, forever for you

Now I'm falling into your eyes
They're two glittering stones in sidewalk snow
And about a thousand miles deep
It seems I can't keep my mind on what you just said
Staring straight ahead, so help me god
Though your lips didn't move, you told nothing but the truth
And I want to be like you
Crawl into your skin, feel your clothes from the inside
But then you'll think that I'm a freak
You'll push back your chair and say
I'm going out for air
And then you'll just leave and I don't want you to leave

We're not united
But we'll stand for each other
When the whole world let us down
No red, white, and blue
No more underground
Standing up for you
Forever for you, forever for you
Forever for you
