It comes as no surprise
Your face filled with lies
Hovers all around me in this room

Clouds hung with my dismay
A hot bed where we lay
Your every kiss tasting like a tomb

If time becomes a judge
If my body holds a grudge
It's just because I needed sanctuary

Your skin under my nails
My curiosity that failed
To save myself for something that I need

I don't wanna bleed
Or bruise up black and blue
Do I deserve these things
All for wanting you?

Like some virgin with her cloth
I play the goddess coming through
Now I play the parting slave
All for wanting you

We do things 'cause we must
The law of love and lust
Comes together just like oil on flame

I looked into your eyes
You saw me naked for a while
How d'you like it in my little nest?

Who was really using who?
In here the scent of you
Stains the sheets with memory and lust

When I get back on the street
Tell everybody that I meet
Maybe these aren't scars, they're only rust

I don't wanna bleed
Or bruise up black and blue
Do I deserve these things
All for wanting you?

Like some virgin with her cloth
I play the goddess coming through
Now I play the parting slave
All for wanting you
