"For Wanting You" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
It comes as no surprise
Your face filled with lies
Hovers all around me in this room

Clouds hung with my dismay
A hot bed where we lay
Your every kiss tasting like a tomb

If time becomes a judge
If my body holds a grudge
It's just because I needed sanctuary

Your skin under my nails
My curiosity that failed
To save myself for something that I need

I don't wanna bleed
Or bruise up black and blue
Do I deserve these things
All for wanting you?

Like some virgin with her cloth
I play the goddess coming through
Now I play the parting slave
All for wanting you

We do things 'cause we must
The law of love and lust
Comes together just like oil on flame

I looked into your eyes
You saw me naked for a while
How d'you like it in my little nest?

Who was really using who?
In here the scent of you
Stains the sheets with memory and lust

When I get back on the street
Tell everybody that I meet
Maybe these aren't scars, they're only rust

I don't wanna bleed
Or bruise up black and blue
Do I deserve these things
All for wanting you?

Like some virgin with her cloth
I play the goddess coming through
Now I play the parting slave
All for wanting you
