​Libertine Takes a Lover

This song is by Parlour Steps and appears on the album The Great Perhaps (2005).

We accelerate, draw lips to our faces
Insulate, spin cocoons around our bodies
Entertain the chance of things
Being rosier on the other side

Demonstrate, we hide our children
Copulate, dismantle our armour
Write our myths and share our kiss
Blissfully into the other side

As we're traveling fast
You can see our hearts are beating slow
Oh, so slow
Fading in our romance, eating up the scenery
With the rest of this human show

Challenge me, resist temptation
My honesty, my ego, my pretension
Argueing for the chance of things
Being rosier on the other side

Honestly it has not been written
And figuratively we may never get to it
Arguing for the chance of things
Being rosier on the other side
