When Doves Cry (Radio Edit) - Lyrics

Dig if u will the picture
Of u and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can u my darling--can u picture this?

Dream if u can
A courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and u

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just 2 demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father 2 bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase u
Even doves have pride

How can u just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold, world so cold
Maybe I'm just 2 demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father 2 bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like when doves cry.
