Tim Curry - Read My Lips (1978): 3 song lyrics        4,997 views

TAGS: Read My Lips Tim Curry
Written by Carole Pope and Kevan Staples.

Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.
Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.

My voluptuary bird of paradise,
I fold your wings
I won't think twice.
If the pleasures of the flesh could transcend
Then ecstasy would be my end.
Don't be contrite, let's take flight
I might not feel this open again.
Strutting peacock with azure plumes
Come into my cage, I mean my room.

Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.
Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.

It's intoxicating for me to fantasize like this,
I'd rather be anywhere than this flea-bitten dive.
A funky motel room with a kleig light outside
A Lincoln laying rubber, spraying gravel at the door.
Don't be contrite, let's take flight,
I might not feel this need again.
Swaggering tough, with youth's cruel bloom
Come into my cage, I mean my room.

Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.
Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.

We're from the same jungle
Our existence depends on our underhanded games.
There's no money in the mattress,
No release for your veins.
We're just two jive streetfighters, so don't complain.
Don't be contrite, let's take flight,
I might not feel this sane again.
Alley commando, denim dragoon,
Come into my rage, I mean my room.

Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.
Birds of a feather, flock together, yes they do, yes.

I'm not worth a damn,
Lost in the stars.
A roamer's flesh, watering eyes
Your smoldering reckless,
So insinuating I'm a victim of passion,
In fact a vapid melting bruise, falling bewildered,
Birds of a feather, falling bewildered.

Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I always will
If it take an only lifetime
If you ask me to, I will

And when at first I saw you
I didn't know your name
But it never really mattered
For I love you just the same

Love you forever
And forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the thing you do
Endear you to me
Oh, you know I will
Oh oh you know I will

Love you forever
And forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the thing you do
Endear you to me
Oh, you know I will
Oh oh you know I will
(Three times now)
Oh oh you know I will

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the thing you do
Endear you to me
Oh, you know I will
(Two times now)
Oh oh you know I will
(Three times now)
Oh oh you know I will
(How 'bout four times)
Oh oh, you know I will

Anyone who had a heart
Could look at me
And know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed
Could look at me
And know I dream of you
Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in their arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
What am I to do

Everytime you go away
I always say
This time it's goodbye dear
Loving you the way I do
I take you back
Without you I'd die dear
Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in their arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
What am I to do

Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in their arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
What am I to do

Everytime you go away
I always say
This time it's goodbye dear
Loving you the way I do
I take you back
Without you I'd die dear
Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in their arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue

Oh! Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in their arms and love me too
