lyrics

let’s celebrate desire and surrender to the flame
let’s let ourselves be selfish there’s no need to be ashamed
we were not made to let ourselves grow rotten on the vine
I know heaven can’t be better than your body next to mine

there’s nothing I prefer to being pressed against your skin
no one can convince me feeling this good is a sin
I will get down on my knees if you want for me to beg
with your fingers in my hair
my mouth between your legs
I think you are perfection, I think you are divine
I know heaven can’t be better than your…

there’s no need for hesitation, no cause for any doubt
you know I’ll love you even after every star burns out
I think you are perfection, I think you are divine
I know heaven can’t be better than your body next to mine
