“Benediction” Thurston Moore

With benediction in her eyes
Our dearest gods are not surprised
You better hold your lover down
Tie him to the ground
Whisper “I love you”
One thousand times into his ear, kiss his eyes
And don’t you cry girl, he won’t disappear
But I know better than to let you down

With benediction in her mind
She’ll never get you back in time
You better hold your lover down
And tie her to the ground
Simple pleasures strike like lighting
Scratches spell her name
Thunder demons swipe her halo
And then they run away
But I know better than to let her go

With benediction in her eyes
Our dearest gods are not surprised
You better hold your lover down
And tie her to the ground
Simple pleasures strike like lightening
Scratches cross her name
Whisper “I love you, my darling. Life is just a fling”
But I know better than to let her go

I know better than to let you go

I know better
