Before All Others

lyrics

Some may say I’m your lover
And your friends call me your “other”
You might be holding another man’s hand
Even wearing a gold wedding band
But when I see you, I am your lover man

When I look in your eyes
You are still holding my hand
Your man, before all others

Born from desire we cross the line
Straight into the fire and into our time
On the thin ice we will be skating
Forbidden love, our hearts will be breaking
But when I see you, I am your lover man

When I look in your eyes
You are still holding my hand
Your man, before all others

My darling one, my Starling flung
Through the circling sun the restless river runs
Going where it must go, down into the rabbit hole

When “over” never has an end
Even now that you tell me that we are just friends
When you turn that corner
And you dare not look back
You still feel my mouth on your neck and my hand on your…

‘Cause when you see me, I am your lover man
When you look in my eyes I am still holding your hand
You’re mine, before all others
