lyrics

I found a blue in your eyes
A shade so crystal the skies
Turned into green when they knew
That they were bested by you

I found a light in your heart
The sun could not even start
To shine with rays so intense
Your love is too tall a fence

I found a home in your arms
To keep me safe from all harm
I'm lost inside your embrace
I see my life in your face

I found a dream in your mind
And it was one of a kind
You deal your castles of sand
With every move of your hand

CHORUS

Sing with me
Or am I moving too fast love?
Dance with me
O but that came out so crass love
Breathe with me
I need this moment to last love
Feel with me
I need a touch of your class love

I know you don't mean to flaunt it
But your beauty's a gauntlet
And I'm dodging the whips
With every swing of your hips

And building on the analogy
I'm up on the gallows, see
From the nape of your neck
The way your cape swept the deck

I'm sure I'll be on the rack
Just from the small of your back
And then my bones'll be creaking
From the one tiny peek

So Mrs. Marquis de Sade
Grant me a wink or a nod
Some morsels I can accrue
Until you tighten the screw

REPEAT CHORUS

But O this bittersweet Midas touch
When everything glitters it ain't worth much

And all my rocks and gems and jewels
Summon up flocks of freaks and ghouls

I tried to turn them with my cross
But why should I spurn the lame and lost?

Because this undead zombie sea
They're just like me! They're just like me!

I practiced Perseus
And preyed for mercy but
You petrified my bones
You turned my skin to stone

And from a stony scabbard
Though I pulled a dagger
All I found was jail
Inside your holy grail
