Rippling Covers

We lay down on my bed
You let me kiss your head
Time seemed to fly right by
You showed me I’m a guy

Why do you tempt me so
Like a fox and a doe
You know I’m mortal—
Falling through a portal

Gasping for your red blood
To mix with my brown mud
You make me what I am
You just don’t give a damn

Why are you so pretty—
And I such a pity?
Like the endless lovers
Beneath rippling covers

Lay your head on my chest
Promise to do my best—
To keep you as my love
As sure as God’s above.
