Lyrics Edit

move your hand
south of the waist line.
let your head fall back.
i will watch your body shiver
as blood rises us high.

leave a little mark, a contribution,
as you get down on your knees.
while we're in the dark,
you know how to use me.
now tell us how you feel.

leave a little mark, a contribution,
as you get down on your knees.
while we're in the dark,
you know how to use me.
now tell us how you feel.

while we're in the dark,
move your hand.
while we're in the dark,
move your hand.
