All The Perfume Of Arabia

from by The Peach Tree

about

This song takes its name from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. There is a scene where Lady Macbeth, tortured by guilt, is pacing around in her sleep, muttering “Out, damned spot!” and “All the perfume of Arabia could not sweeten this little hand.” (referring to the blood on her hands). This is a love song addressed to no-one, or more specifically, anyone who would accept a man marked by sin as their lover.

lyrics

Would you dance with me,
If I said there'd only be
You and me
On the floor?

Would you read my thoughts,
If inside of them you saw
Your reflection?

Could my hand caress your face,
If I told you you might taste
All the perfume of Arabia?

Under where you stand
Is a tangled broken land,
But there's room for two.

Look into my eyes
That have seen such distant skies.
I could take you there...

So why would you wait
Another lonely day,
Tearing your heart away?

If you wanna be with me,
I'll set your spirit free
For another day.

If you close your eyes,
Do you ever see what lies
Beneath your dreams?

When you listen close,
Do you ever hear a ghost
Whispering in the wind?

If you opened up your mind,
Do you ever think you'd find
What you're looking for?

If you opened up your heart,
And tore your hate apart,
I'd be waiting...

Here.
