If I could have one touch I'm sure your skin would rain down on me
If I could run inside
If I could run and hide
I'd stand hunch shouldered in the doorway
Hunch shouldered in the doorway, in the doorway

I saw him standing in the doorway in Metamoros
Looking like a smudge on the surface of the night
I could tell just by looking that his head was filled with cobwebs
But they looked like halos, at least they did to me in a flicker of the light

I saw her running through the alleys in Ludigree Texas
A scratch of vermillion on the surface of the night
In a flicker of the light

I could tell she was sleeping, but she ran with a mission
She ran like an animal, she ran like a demon
She ran like she had nowhere better to return to
She ran like she couldn't see the lights back behind her
She ran till she saw the light

If I could have one touch I'm sure your skin would rain down on me
If I could run inside
If I could run and hide
I'd stand hunch shouldered in the doorway
Hunch shouldered in the doorway, in the doorway
