"Button For Punishment" as written by and Carrick Moore Gerety....
i'm taking a chance
'cause that's all i got
when i walk away
you'll tell me to stop

the back of my head
too painful to see
and i feel a shadow
following me

i can't get enough
you really are a torturess, my girl
an audience that isn't impressed

you are my button for punishment
that i push until i'm satisfied

my jacket is on
can leave when i want
both only a word i'll be nailed to the spot
where your lashes stared
and your breath was warm
like delicate breezes
before the storm

you could almost forget
you really are a torturess, my dear
a teacher looking over my test

you are my button for punishment
that i push until i'm satisfied
but i'm not satisfied

give me some punishment
oh, i can take it
give me more, oh, please
baby, help me
kill me
i would lose my mind if i can't stay
...if i can't stay

so don't you forget
when walking where the river leads
wearing a ring that's from a vending machine
i am a glutton for punishment
and i won't stop until i'm satisfied
but i'm not satisfied

give me some punishment
on this rainy evening
no use hiding on
the corner of Pitz & Mercy (?)
you accidentally said you loved me
now, i bet you wish you could just take it back
but now i know it's a fact
and that's your punishment

    General CommentMaybe I'm just slow, but I don't fully get this line:
    "you are my button for punishment
    that i push until i'm satisfied".

    Regardless,
    the guitar, Carrick's voice, the melody, everything about this song is so beautfiful and sweet and I wouldn't change a thing.
    I love it to pieces.

    General Commenti love the acoustic version of this song on 1 1/2!

    but the correct lyric is ---
    on the corner of prince and mercer
