Don't go now We've got a good thing It's hard for me to say stay I pull your waist to mine With your innocence sacrificed Dissolve your love, ravage your mind You say don't go away Break it down Make it simple I like you, you like me, let's stay together I carve my name on your tongue And pull the air from your lungs Suffocate you, til you think I'm the one You say I like you, you like me, let's stay together Unravel in my void Then undress to the sound of my voice And dance for this cruel cruel boy You say I like you, you like me, let's stay together

God, I'm so lonely Though I am married to what may be It's never enough God, I'm so weary Of accessories and possibilities They're never enough Everybody's looking for a good time I think I've found mine God, I'm so lonely Though my dreams haunt me Who could ever want me When I'm never enough Everybody's looking for a good time I think I've found mine And everybody's looking for a piece of the pie I think I'll give away mine And if you think for a moment I would spend my life waiting for you to decide I am enough Well, let me save you the trouble 'Cause everybody's looking for a good time I think I've found mine And everybody's looking for a piece of the pie I think I'll give away mine It's never enough

Tell me what it is that makes a man Tell me what it is that makes me sad I just want to be everything you say I am Don't feel sorry for me, no sympathy please Just hold my hand Tell me what you see in this man Tell me I am good, if you can I am helpless and desperate for you to understand In every moment that we spend I'm happiest when you hold my hand There are so times you feel out of reach Though you're next to me I just want to be close to you Even if just the sand that you tread Tell me what it is that breaks a man Is it the desire he can't have I know I'll wander through time and over land Wishing I could have been The one that you let in To be your man

It's over The promises we thought would last Have now come to pass And that's okay Maybe they were only words Only words But sometimes it still hurts when we meet And you look so tender and so far away It's over The day we both did dread Has now come, and my bed is empty Maybe they were only words Only words But sometimes it still hurts when we meet And you look so tender and so far away And I could say: "Baby, let's try again" But maybe they are only words Only words And sometimes it still hurts when we meet And you speak Of the life you've built without me

For your pleasure A little black leather around my neck Whatever you want For your pleasure A little black liner around my eyes Whatever you want Just say For your pleasure A little black magic in my hands Whatever you want Just say And for your pleasure A little black leather around my mouth You stole all my air anyhow Someone once told me love is danger And now I'm a witness to how I would suffer For your pleasure For your pleasure My heart on a platter

See my face Stained on the moon Feel my breath Woven into cool In fire and fall Know my song In sleep and in dreams Be my song Go down to where the water rises To greet the moon's satin kisses This fire is burning bright Just whisper my song tonight Taste my blood In your wine Feed your heart With absent time In fire and fall I will burn In sleep and in dreams I will return Go down to where the sun is sleeping And wait to watch The snow is coming There's fire in my eyes And my tears are golden light And I cry for you tonight

Memory, leave me Let this sleep be forgiven I rise and try to walk but then I smash into ashes I surrender Memory, leave me Let this sleep be forgiven Memory, desert me All loneliness is forgotten I rise and try to And open my eyes Is it me or the sky that is falling I surrender Memory, I forsake thee I surrender this body Stars and shards of glass cut deep But in this surrender, I am free I rise and try To work but then I forget I am breathing I forgot I was breathing I surrender

Love passed through me like gasoline Burnt my insides and left me clean We tore and tore and tore until our love was no more And I fell asleep for two thousand years Let the scent of gasoline disappear Wake me when we get there Moved by some incredible sound My body left the ground Towards the city covered in ashes Eyes closed, towards the masses Of bodies and dreams in flames I won't forget your names Wake me when you get there I place my head to the ground Place my head to the ground There is no death Just a tear Where you once were Torn heart, torn city, an immaculate dream This love isn't blind, I watched you fall And though love passes through like gasoline Maybe love is redeemed In the moment that you believed That when you'd fall from the sky You would fly Wake me when if get there Will we ever get there?
