Track Name: A Family Trait
It’s a family trait
Like the colour of my skin
Like pale blue eyes
Coming round again
And a family like ours
Keeps to its own
There’s no love as gentle
As the lover you know

I know you find it hard to understand
How the lover’s touch comes from the brother’s hand
But we’ve grown up closer, closer than most do
And I won’t break with my tradition for a man like you

I know you don’t talk about these things
And how it’s all done in white and with those
Diamond wedding rings
But I love someone that I already know
And if you don’t like what you’re seeing you can pack your bags and go

And I’ve told you my heart
And you know it’s a part
Of all my sleeping and my waking up
My lover’s heart my lover’s touch
His hands are like mine
And he holds me so tightly
He holds me as I sleep
And then he wakes me
Oh so lightly
