Prince Of Softness

You'll have to remember I'm out there

You'll have to remember and take care

It's cold as the night time starts falling

Listen so you'll hear me calling


I'll make no sound as my foot falls

I'll follow the path where the bird calls

This gray coat of mine will blend with the night

I'll always keep well out of sight


This night I'm planning to kill

I'll crouch in the hedge past the hill

It will give me a great satisfaction

I'm ready to go into action


When I come back, spread your arms wide

I'll be cold so wrap me up inside

I'll be wanting and needing your touch

Be careful, don't give me too much


Now let me rest in your chair

While the warmth of you still lingers there

Our good times together have had me beguiled

Always remember my nature is wild


One day you'll find I have gone away

Know then I'll be well and return one day

I'm the Prince of Softness who always survives

I'm the cat, don’t forget, born with nine lives
