Hold your ears and speak with sorrow
It sounds as if these words are hollow
You stutter something like "just close your eyes
And for tonight let's feel alive."
Your body reaches out, saying it's just one last time
One last, one last time

The tables turn, you're controlling the show
And every movement throws a wake
That sends me drowning below, below
The lights come on, now we're ready to go
I try to step away, but now it's on with the show, the show

Your lips are something that taste like kerosine
You say "baby, take a bite."
Voice drenched with fantasy
You're the fire under my bed
I fear going to sleep
You're the worst nightmare that I have ever dreamed

The tables turn, you're controlling the show
And every movement throws a wake
That sends me drowning below, below
The lights come on, now we're ready to go
I try to step away, but now it's on with the show, the show

Everytime that you come in close
It's like I have no more choice
All I can do it regret
And when the show comes to a end
You'll be the winner once again
I feel I cannot breathe, when you move like the sea

I'll slowly try escape this hold you have on me
But I'll succeed
Your body like poetry, singing sweet melody
Breathing so heavily
This melody of my memory

And face to face, give you back the kiss you gave
Take back all the things you said
I never was one for this type of display
Is it the way that you move?
You will never see what you want me to be
