about

This is the song that the person is singing who thinks their lover might kill them. But they unfortunately still find them wildly attractive.

lyrics

I am the monkey, you are the tiger
I am the bird, you're the bird-eating spider
But I'm so hungry for your love

You are the feline, I am the rodent
You;re in the distance and I'm in the moment
But I'm so hungry for your love

One, two, three
We're as happy as can be
When we can run away
Did you see the morning star
Was it buried in your heart
While you were dreaming, not sleeping

I am the goldfish, you are the housecat
You are the bones, and I am the flesh but
I'm so hungry for your love

Cat ate the mouse without any warning
We're lovers by night and strangers by morning
But I'm so hungry for your love

One, two, three
We're as happy as can be when we can run away
Did you see the morning star
Was it buried in your heart
While you were dreaming, dreaming

Oh, it was all so real
But my hands were shaking
I, I, I, I can't escape you
Or maybe I just don't want to

You are the hunter, I am your kill
I'm faint and I'm dizzy and I'm feeling ill
But I'm so hungry for your love

Oh fill me up with all of your loving
Baby, can't you see I'm starving
I'm so hungry for your love

One, two, three
Are you going to capture me
Or let me fly away
Did you hold a shooting star
Did it leave you with a scar
Did it burn?
Or did it heal you?

about

Lily & King Melbourne, Australia

An acoustic junkyard - blissful, beautiful, dirty and wicked.

They play hot Dixieland punk dotted with haunting seaside lullabies and street corner stomp. Their set sits somewhere between a captivating 40's nightclub routine and the raw, reckless spirit of New Orleans street buskers. ... more
