Sexiest lyric of the day: «Watch Her Disappear»

Last night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you
And I from a window across the lawn I watched you undress,
wearing a sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair
that rose in strangled ebony curls moving in a yellow Bedroom Light.

The air is wet with sound
The faraway yelping of a wounded dog and the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak,
Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat
a light goes on and a door opens and a yellow cat runst out on the stream
of hall light and into the yard.
A wooden cherry scent is faintly breathing the air
I hear your champagne laugh
you wear two lavender orchids – one in your hair and one on your hip
a string of yellow carnival lights comes on with the dusk
circling the lake in a slowly dipping halo, and I hear a banjo tango,
and you dance into the shadow of a Black Poplar Tree
I watch you as you disappear

I watch you as you disappear
I watch you as you disappear

Watch Her Disappear, Alice
By Tom Waits
