There's a guy who comes to call, I think that he is fairly strange
There are details in your life that you just have to rearrange

And while you wait as I'll make you wait you won't be sleeping much
Before I start to touch
I get to play, I get to say the way we'll always be
I make the law you'll beg me for the one that lets you see

I have to win, define your skin and love your punishment
Now I'm your state, and your ever-loving government

So they're gonna take you in the dawn
Before it gets too light
I'm gonna let them cut your clothes off
Put you on the flight
You'll come to me, I'll set you free
Take away your skin so there's no secrecy

I only need you to obey me like you ought to do
And tell me all the things I tell you like you know they're true
Then I can magnify my fears and make you scream all night
I'm gonna put this love around you
I'm gonna pull it so tight tight tight

They're gonna take you in the dawn
Before it gets too light
I'm gonna let them cut your clothes off
Put you on the flight
You'll come to me, I'll set you free
I'll get to take away your skin so there's no secrecy

I'm gonna make you last so long
We're gonna make you my love song

    Lyric CorrectionSons And Daughters & A. L. Kennedy - The War On Love Song

    There's a guy who comes to call, I think that he is fairly strange
    There are details in your life that you just have to rearrange

    And while you wait as I'll make you wait you won't be sleeping much
    before I start to touch
    I get to play, I get to say the way we'll always be
    I'll make the law, you'll beg me for the one that lets you see

    I have to win, define your sin, love your punishment
    Now I'm your state and your ever-loving government

    They're gonna take you in the dawn
    before it gets too light
    I'm gonna let them cut your clothes off
    put you on the flight

    You'll come to me, I'll set you free
    Take away your skin so there's no secrecy

    I only need you to obey me like you ought to do
    and tell me all the things I tell you like you know they're true

    Then I can magnify my fears and make you scream all night
    I'm gonna put this love around you
    I'm gonna pull it so tight, tight, tight

    They're gonna take you in the dawn
    before it gets too light
    I'm gonna let them cut your clothes off
    put you on the flight

    You'll come to me, I'll set you free
    Take away your skin so there's no secrecy

    I'm gonna make you last so long
    We're gonna make you my love song
