The monkey knows how you'll react
Creating want by holding back
Like some reverse pyromaniac
Let me try baby try

I prop my window up, and then
I turn my back to lure you in
To rifle through what I might have been
Let me try baby try

Baby please let me begin
Let me be your heroin
Hate the sinner but love the sin
Let me be your heroin

We have crossed the Rubicon
The ship awash, our rudder gone
The rats have fled but I'm hanging on
Let me try baby try

Baby please let me begin
Let me be your heroine
Hate the sinner but love the sin
Let me be your heroin

Baby please let me begin
Let me be your heroine
Hate the sinner but love the sin
Let me be your heroin

    General CommentTo me this song is about how some people can hook you and eat at your soul every bit as much as being addicted to heroin...it's another way of filling the hole in your life with something that hurts you.

    General Commenti agree with theotherjoey, but not about filling a hole in your life with something that hurts you. it all depends on what you lack in your life.

    i think it's about adultery (hate the sinner but love the sin---adultery is a sin)

    General Commentfurthermore, this song is probably the best song i've ever heard by her.

    just the way the music plays... it's like a yearning. the first few bars are so sultry and when in the later verses the chorus is really played up, it's like she is begging. it gets so powerful.

    gives me chilllllllssss

    General Commentand by the way "crossed the rubicon" means you've done something you can't undo... like cheating on your husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend
