lyrics

an angel from madagascar
picked me up in a motorcar
we filled our bodies
up with stars
now we're iridescent in the dark
now our mothers don't know who we are
but i love my angel from madagascar

an angel from the slums of tangiers
whispered a rancid lovesong in my ears
and filled my memory up
with her tears

an angel from a dead sea dawn
lashed my skin with a branch of palm
and told me to love isn't just
to disarm

you could take me down
with one touch
of your scorn
your kiss like a whip
your caress full of thorns
desire desirous
pleasure that tears itself apart

an angel from madagascar
picked me up in a motorcar
we got drunk in the moonlight
threw knives, and bloodied the stars
it was fun, i'd do it again
but that night it rained
i caught a fever and died
night swallowed me up
and when i opened my eyes
it was all a dream
but there's a star in the palm of my eye

so take me down with one touch of your scorn
your kiss like a whip
your caress full of thorns
desire desirous
pleasure that tears itself
apart

an angel from madagascar
picked me up in a motorcar
we filled our bodies
up with stars
now we're iridescent in the dark
now our mothers don't know who we are
but i love my angel from madagascar
