Word of Your Body (Reprise) [from RISE] Lyrics

Word of Your Body (Reprise) [from RISE]

Come cream away the bliss
Travel the world within my lips
Fondle the pearl of your distant dreams
Haven’t you heard the word of your body?

Oh, you’re gonna be wounded
Oh, you’re gonna my your wound
Oh, you’re gonna bruise too
Oh, I’m gonna be your bruise

[ERNST, spoken]
Oh, God!

[HANSCHEN, spoken]
Mmm, I know. When we look back thirty years from now, tonight will seem unbelievably… beautiful

[ERNST, spoken]
And in the meantime?

[HANSCHEN, spoken]
Why not?

[ERNST, spoken]
On my way here this afternoon, I thought perhaps we would only… talk

[HANSCHEN, spoken]
So are you sorry we…?

[ERNST, spoken]
No! I-I love you, Hanschen, as I have never loved anyone

[HANSCHEN, spoken]
And so you should

[ERNST]
Oh, I’m gonna be wounded
Oh, I’m gonna be your wound

[BOTH]
Oh, I’m gonna bruise you
Oh, you’re gonna be my bruise

Oh, you’re gonna be wounded
Oh, you’re gonna be my wound
Oh, you’re gonna bruise too
Oh, I’m gonna be your bruise
