The first time I saw you,
I loved you,
I loved you.
Your face blue,
Your eyes, too,
Your mouth, too,
Your mouth, too.
When I heard you
I wanted to
Give birth to you,
Give birth to you.
I made love to you,
Made love to you.
The great goddess
Had us blessed.
The last time I saw you,
I fought with you,
I fought with you.
I didn't mean to,
I didn't mean to.
Oh, say you'll see me.
Let me say sorry.
The next time I see you,
I'll love you,
I'll be sweet to you
I'll take you to
My healing room.
Oh, we both know
How loneliness goes.
Every time I see you,
I want you,
I want you.
The more I do,
You hate me to,
But the great goddess
Had us blessed.

Produced by Brian Eno and John Reynolds
