Release information
Release Date: 1991
Genre: Rock
Style: Indie Rock

In the night
The harlot moves across the floor
She turns the handle on the door

One hundred eyes
Seem to look right through her
Why she's there?
They're not sure

Behind her love
She falls down to her knees
Without a word
She begins to weep
And her tears
Fall down upon his feet

And she smothers them
With kisses
And she dries them
With her hair

In my life
Sorrow has kissed my lonely heart
Fear of man tears me apart

And I've tried
But many times I've loved the world
Many times I've been the whore

I've cried a million tears
Maybe more
So many times
I have been the whore

I will fall down
On my knees
I will sing
"I love, my love"
I will weep
"I love, my love"

I will sing
Cause I love, my love
And my tears will fall
Down upon your feet

Let me smother them
With kisses
Let me dry them
With my hair

If I could be
Anyone at all
If I could be
Anyone at all
Let me be
The whore at your feet
