Bodies entwined - The weight on my mind

makes me partially blind to the tears in your tightly closed eyes.

You tell me we’re fine, but the warning sign...

 

...is a little white line between lust and the rest of our lives.

Take me down in the dark with you; let me feel what you want me to do.

You can scream if you need to, or cry and I’ll hold you.

Drag me down in the dirt with you; make me want what you need me to do.

I can scream just to please you, or cry on your pillow.

 

I don’t think you lied - about your wild side

you’re just not satisfied without danger to fuel your desire.

Did you know I cried? That I tried to hide...

 

...the fact that part of me died from the burns of your passion and fire.

Take me into the dark with you; let me feel what you want me to do.

You can scream if you need to, or cry and I’ll hold you.

Drag me down in the dirt with you; make me want what you need me to do.

I can scream just to please you, or cry on your pillow.

 

Your passion’s a flame, but, the rules of this game

make me nearly insane, you can’t tell me we’re one and the same.

Don’t try to explain. I won’t feel pain...

 

...of you leaving again; I’ve already accepted the blame.

I'll go down in the dark with you, I know I won't be the same.

I can't live with or without You - I have a will to survive.

There’s a little white line between...

Lust and the rest of our lives
