"Resist" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
The sign says do not enter
No trespassing allowed
With visions of redemption
I walk against the crowd
The sun is white with envy
Confusion on the ground
Breathing soft and holy
Temptation's only sound

A demon's day in madness kissed
I swear I never had it like this
Forbidden yet I cannot resist

Shocked in silent trances
Our eyes search just to know
What makes flesh and body hunger
For another burning soul
Conscience quiet pleading
In the corner of my eye
But seeing is believing
All consequences fly

A demon's day in madness kissed
I swear I never had it like this
Forbidden yet I cannot resist

With fever I persist
The rages of your kiss
My reckless heart in fist
And I cannot resist

A demon's day in madness kissed
I swear I never had it like this
Forbidden yet I cannot resist

    General CommentI think it's about a straight girl who starts to fall in love with her gay friend,and she thinks that it's wrong,and she feels confused,but still the passion,and chemistry is so strong between them that she can't stop herself from falling in love with her,and i think that melissa wrote this when she was dating julie cypher who might felt like this.
