Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss, a singing smile
Coffee smell and lilac skin, your flame in me
Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss, a singing smile
Coffee smell and lilac skin, your flame in me

I'm only here for this moment
I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
How our love will blow it all away

Such a thing of wonder in this crowd
I'm a stranger in this town, you're free with me
And our eyes locked in downcast love, I sit here proud
Even now you're undressed in your dreams with me

I'm only here for this moment
I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
How our love will blow it all away

I know the tears we cried
Have dried on yesterday
The sea of fools has parted for us
There's nothing in our way, my love

Don't you see, don't you see?
You're just the torch to put the flame
To all our guilt and shame
And I'll rise like an ember in your name

I know, I know
I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
Let me show that love can rise
Rise just like embers

Love can taste like the wine of the ages, babe
And I know they all look so good from a distance
But I tell you I'm the one
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
Thinks he needs you
And I'll be waiting right here just to show you
