lyrics

I had a dream the strip was lit up
I had a dream of Rome
but Caesar's perfumed gardens
cannot lift my thoughts from home
No coin nor crown nor climbing vine
can imitate the skies
above the place I long to rest
and where my heart still lies
for love I never have found house
as home as your dear eyes
A love match:
a match with no love for real lives
Off the edge of the map
only dragons and ruinous death lie
but if we yet breathe, so in time we will die
A love match or no match my spirit now cries
Take me like a sparrow to your breast!
Take me like you are a grave
and me a ghost who cannot rest!
Hold me like you'd pin the tide!
Hold me any way, just hold me tight
Do you remember three a.m.?
Does your place ring a bell?
I can't recall the time or place
but somewhere there I fell
No bruise nor contusion could mark
the hardest blow to bear:
that after all was said and done
it was because you cared
and I, a fool in love, cannot
pluck hate from the thin air
A love match:
oh, forgive me my hate and spite!
I will torch every bridge
just to bask in the glow of the firelight
but if we yet burn so in time we will die
A match is a match and like newsprint we strike
