Ecstasy

I ran so fast I barely stayed in my shoes
With nothing so urgent and no pressing news
The dogs yapped, the wind tugged at my hair
Against the odds I’d get this kite in the air

An upward draft and I’m in ecstasy
The fact of flight and I’m in ecstasy.

Our souls alone met and then were two
My heart was the very least I could give to you
A shaft, a gear, a purring synchromesh
I smell your sweat, you clutch at my flesh

Another thrust and I’m in ecstasy
I come inside and I’m in ecstasy

And now they’re pumping in the medicine
It slows me down, I don’t think I can win
The bustle outside goes on and on and on
See my dust, suckers, I’m long gone

I’m flying now and I’m in ecstasy
I fade from view and I’m in ecstasy

My love for you is my ecstasy
My love remains, it is my ecstasy
My love for you is my ecstasy
My love remains, it is my ecstasy.
