A wish is as good as a prayer
And a glance, as good as a stare
If words fall on deaf ears
And eyes no longer care

Why is it so that I can’t let you go?
It gets harder the harder I try
All signs of resolve just seem to dissolve
With each part of you I descry

Why can’t I find a way away from your arms?
Why can’t I stay away from your harm?
Why can’t I find a way away from your arms?
Why can’t I stay away?

When you were a rose all I touched was your thorns
When you were a beast all I felt was your horn
I needed it cool, you needed to yearn
I needed your breath, you needed to burn

The toxic perfumes of our passion consumed
Leave me breathless and gasping for air
The more I push away, the more you want to stay
To cradle me in my despair

To feel your kiss is to feel your scorn
To hear your voice is to hear your roar
The loss of your touch is a loss that I mourn
But I wanted this and you wanted more

Now I don’t know why, with each passage I try
I just end up closer to you
And as I string along this here chaplet of songs
It draws you into me to
