Lesson learned, learned today
My lesson learned, I learned this today
I’m too close to stay away
I’m too far to try and stay
Oh hurt me slowly, I feel your beauty
In every pulse of your sacred heart
Oh easy, easy, watch your cruelty
I felt it faintly from the start

But I don’t want to be you
I just want you here, I say
And I don’t want to see you
I just need you near
Here we go now

No, no, but yes, but yes, but yes

Head full of these useless questions
I can’t redeem my old temptation
Oh medicate me to ease my pain
Love me, know that I’m insane
Oh hate me, but use me to your liking
Oh yell at me to stop these voices
Become the you, just stop regretting
We’re just animals aware of choices

    General CommentI think it's about confusing one-sidey love, or something along those lines..

    General CommentI agree. I also think it's about being in love with someone who is bad for you. You know, loving someone even though they hurt you, but you can't help but love them. Beautiful song.

    General CommentIn the Album booklet, it says "Come To You, To Stop Regretting" but now I'm not sure which one is right... Great song, one of my faves on the album.
