Ariadne (acoustic)

The Cuban Cowboy is in love. He used to be a minotaur. True Story.


She got big, big bruises
On her heart, enough to prove
That after all gets said and done
She just a human
She like to think
She takes a punch, what's wrong with her?
Standing on her toes like a Matador

I wish I could say she got away but that wouldn't be so true

If you divide her love in two
You get half a man and half a bull
Who fights desire with distance
But that's a war that he will lose
Like a body trying to choose
Between a flu and a fever

I wish I could take your pain away, but then you would not be you.

See me hangin' by a thread
I'm your lonely minotaur
Ariadne made my bed and her fingers came uncrossed
To reach, to reach inside me.

Now watch them kiss, and holdin' hands
Shoe-gazing like downtown bands
So much for the chase
And the labyrinth.
That's when the cave that they'd been in
Calls after them, whisperin'
"Fate forgives

I wish I could be with you right now, 'cos I'm so in love with you.

See me hangin' by a thread
I'm your lonely minotaur
In the cave where I got left I hear the beating of your heart
Beat, deep inside me.
