lyrics

You’re simple and honest and that’s why I love you
And I know you feel the same way for me don’t you
The sum of our parts is the sum of our angles
Our symmetry makes separation so painful

Your lines are so fine you look just like a painting
I sit on the floor near the wall where you’re hanging
I study your shapes and your various poses
I stare at you until the museum closes

And when you wear my clothes when the loving is done
And walk around the house with nothing else on
They look much better on you, don’t they my love?

And no one else knows what it’s like
Yeah only we know what it’s like

You make me feel strange and you make me feel jealous
I need every bit of your love ‘cause I’m selfish
And when we’re together we mirror each other
The same on both sides when we touch one another

We’re drawn on the blackboard inside of the classroom
To prove to the class with our math what can happen
When two perfect sides come together on top of
A base representing the place where we make love

And when you say to me that you’ll leave me unless
I take you to the bedroom and help you undress
I really have no choice but to take your request

And no one else knows what it’s like
Yeah only we know what it’s like

You’re simple and honest and that’s why I love you
And I know you feel the same way for me don’t you
I look at you next to me when you are sleeping
And notice you’re so geometrically pleasing

And none of you know what it’s like
Well, some of you know what it’s like
