"Your Joy Is My Low" as written by and Chris Corner....
Said, your joy your joy is my low

He takes your face and positions it to take your mouth
You bite, you bite to excite yourself
He wants the colour of you to wear and feel alive
And you bite, and I'm awake and I'm the slave tonight

You lie, you lie to spare my life
You needed it, he tasted you inside out
Said, your joy, your joy is my low
So you want yourself to stop
So, your joy, your joy is my low
And when you crack the whip, I crawl again

You shift the play, push the curve to sit between your thighs
It's a sign, it's time to exercise the lines
You want the double cut through to wet, invade and slide
You slide and I'm awake and I'm the slave tonight

You lie, you lie to spare my life
You needed it, he tasted you inside out

Say it, your joy, your joy is my low
So you want yourself to stop
Said, your joy, your joy is my low
And when you crack the whip, I crawl again

Say it, your joy, your joy is my low
So you want yourself to stop
Said, your joy, your joy is my low
Your joy is my low

Want yourself to stop

Said, your joy, your joy is my low
So you want yourself to stop
Said, your joy, your joy is my low
And when you crack the whip, I crawl again

Say it, your joy, your joy is my low
So you want yourself to stop
Said, your joy, your joy is my low
Your joy is my low

    General CommentDefinitely about a cheating girlfriend who knew exactly waht she was doing wen she was doing it. Obviously she has a high sex drive and kind of likes playing the boyfriend out. Its definitely a powertrip and I totally grasp the concept of how she thinks. It seems as though the singer has caught them in the act but can't help but watch his girl give herself to another guy. His love for her torments him, but he can't leave her. Ever relationship should have that intensity....there'd prolly b a Lot more murders by the spurned lovers.. But wow. The more I listen to these songs the more I fall for chris corner. He has this shadowed appeal. And wears his heart on his sleeve in his songs but retreats during any live performances or interviews. I would say his songs are damn near absolute perfection!

    General CommentI love this song :]]

    and i have a correction for these lyrics
    when it says

    "Say it, your joy, your joy is my low
    - So you want yourself to stop
    Said, your joy, your joy is my low
    - And when you can't, ??"

    the last part is

    "And when you crack the whip, I crawl again"

    General CommentWhether this song is about sex, drugs, or Ramen Noodles, it's moving.
    And you can bet your ass that you can fuck to it.

    General CommentDefinitely about an affair. He's too intoxicated by this girl to end it though, and he just repeatedly gets hurt. 'You lie to spare my life' - she denies any affair and while Chris knows the truth, makes him self sure that if he says he believes her then none of it ever happened.

    General CommentThis is generally about some kind of toxic affair in my opinion, the line "You lie to spare my life...he tasted you inside out" is about betrayal. the guy who has this strong sexual affair with the girl already knows that she betrayed him but still he can't do anything with it because he really lost his mind for her ("Your joy is my low")

    General CommentIt's about drugs, personified. And a girl taking drugs with him...when he really doesnt want to... "her joy is his low"

    He takes your face and positions it to take your mouth
    You bite, you bite to excite yourself
    He wants the colour of you to wear and feel alive
    And you bite,
    "he" is a pill or drugs.

    and I'm awake and I'm the slave tonight.

    The singer is saying to the girl
    "So, your joy, your joy is my low
    - So you want yourself to stop
    So, your joy, your joy is my low
    - And when you can't, ??

    .-----so u want yourself to stop? and when you cant?
