Arms Of Love by Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians


[00:12]You know I used to call my baby up
[00:17]And we'd get real close
[00:21]Just like the telephone was a sofa
[00:25]And our thoughts would mingle
[00:28]And we'd leave our minds wide open
[00:33]Like a big window in the evening air
[00:38]And we'd say
[00:39]"Hey baby, come on in and help yourself to my soul"
[00:50]"Hey baby, come on in and help yourself to my soul"
[01:01]But these days, even saying, "hello? How are you?"
[01:05]"I'm fine. How are you?" takes a lot of sweat
[01:10]
[01:15]Ain't that a shame
[01:20]Ain't that a shame
[01:26]But in Linctus House
[01:32]In my flesh hotel
[01:38]I don't care anymore
[01:43]
[01:45]You know my baby and me
[01:47]As Kimberley would say
[01:49]We'd curl up like two dogs
[01:51]In front of a fire
[01:55]And our eyes would reflect each other
[01:58]In the warm long heat of love
[02:02]Yeah, the warm long heat of love
[02:07]And I would hear the rain falling
[02:09]On the leaves outside
[02:13]I could'nt stand too close the window
[02:16]'Cause I'd shiver if I left her side
[02:23]But now I'd shake if we should meet
[02:31]And I spend most of my time in the bushes
[02:34]
[02:36]Ain't that a shame
[02:39]Know what you're doing
[02:41]Ain't that a shame
[02:44]Know what you've done
[02:48]But in Linctus House
[02:53]In my flesh hotel
[02:59]I don't care anymore
[03:05]
[03:15]"I understand how everything sometimes
[03:17]Turns out to be nothing," You say
[03:23]But I wonder if you do
[03:31]And if we understood each other
[03:34]There'd be no need to talk
[03:39]But even that, even talking is out of reach
[03:44]Should I say it with flowers or
[03:46]Should I say it with nails?
[03:52]I'm not the kind to push you around
[03:56]But I don't want to make myself vulnerable
[04:03]And if I was on my knees
[04:05]You'd have a pretty good view of my skull
[04:09]And I happen to know you're carrying a chisel
[04:12]
[04:13]But in Linctus House
[04:18]In my flesh hotel
[04:24]I don't care anymore
[04:29]No
[04:31]In Linctus House
[04:35]In my flesh hotel
[04:40]I don't care
[04:46]
[04:58][04:47]Ain't that a shame
[05:01][04:50]Know what you're doing
[05:04][04:52]Ain't that a shame
[05:07][04:56]Know what you've done
