"Love Lust" as written by and Charles Nicholas Joseph Costa....
Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced.
She can always be replaced.
Oh, lust only grows like anger and revenge oh beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

I wrote you a song Mississippi Isabel
I even sent you flowers when you fell ill
You've the strength of the Greeks
You are God's masterpiece
You're every triumph, every victory
I believe in every breath you breathe.

And I always imagined you'd be by my side
Whether I'm hiding in the city or tearing through the wild
You're only a yoke and noose on my throat
If your beauty is a fortress then my love will be the moat.
Oh, fall in love with you, fall in love with you, I must.

I'll consume every part of you to indulge my love lust.

Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced.
She can always be replaced.
Oh, lust only grows like anger and revenge oh beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

Never let a woman go even when you know

With a guitar in my hand or a gun in my hand, I'd give it all up for your hand in my hand.
For the sun on my skin as the morning begins, I'd die in the darkness to feel your skin on my skin.

Young soul
Young love
Young blood

Treasure every beating heart that sets your soul on fire.
Love will set your soul on fire.

    General CommentI just heard a very clear recording of this live in Connecticut and I believe these are most accurate:

    Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced.
    She can always be replaced.
    Lust only grows like anger and revenge.
    Beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    Beauty comes and goes but love stays until--

    Oh, never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced.
    She can always be replaced.
    Lust only grows like anger and revenge.
    Beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    I wrote you a song Mississippi Isabel
    I even sent you flowers when you felt ill
    You’ve the strength of the Greeks
    You are God’s masterpiece
    You’re every triumph, every victory
    I believe in every breath you breathe.

    And I always imagined you’d be by my side
    Whether I’m hiding in the city or tearing through the wild
    You’re only a yoke, a noose on my throat
    If your beauty is a fortress then my love will be the moat.
    Oh, fall in love with you, fall in love with you, I must.

    I’ll consume every part of you to indulge my love lust.

    Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced.
    She can always be replaced.
    Lust only grows like anger and revenge, oh beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    With a guitar in my hand or a gun in my hand
    I’d give it all up for your hand in my hand.
    For the sun on my skin as the morning begins
    I’d die in the darkness to feel your skin on my skin.

    Young soul
    Young love
    Young blood

    Treasure every beating heart that sets your soul on fire.

    Love will set your soul on fire.

    General CommentFirst, this is a fantastic song- simple, poetically quick and rhythmic. Great lyrics.
    Second, I believe that the lyric is "then my love will be the MOAT" and not "boat" it sounds more like moat in the song and it makes more sense. thanks for getting these lyrics up though! A great song.

    Lyric CorrectionThere's a few things missing from above. I've made a few corrections. "You're only a yoke, a noose on my throat." and "with a guitar in my hand or a gun in my hand"

    Here's what I think the song's lyrics are:

    (Chorus)

    Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced. She can always be replaced.
    Oh, lust only grows like anger and revenge for beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced. She can always be replaced.
    Oh, lust only grows like anger and revenge for beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    I wrote you a song Mississippi Isabelle,
    I even sent you flowers when you felt ill.
    You've the strength of the Greeks,
    You are god's masterpiece.
    You are every triumph, every victory
    I believe in every breath you breathe.

    And I always imagined you'd be by my side,
    Whether Im hiding in the city or I'm tearing through the wild
    you're only a yoke, a noose on my throat.
    if your love was a fortress then my love would be the moat.
    Oh, fall in love with her. Fall in love with you, I must.

    I'll consume every part of you to indulge my love lust.

    (Chorus)

    Never let a woman go even when you know she can always be replaced. She can always be replaced.
    Oh, lust only grows like anger and revenge or beauty comes and goes but love stays until the end.

    (Instrumental Interlude)

    Never let a woman go even when you know.

    (Guitar Solo)

    With a guitar in my hand or a gun in my hand, I'd give it all up for her hand in my hand.
    For the sun on my skin as the morning begins, i'd die in the dark just to feel your skin on my skin.

    Never let a woman go even when you know

    (Bridge)

    Your soul
    Your love
    Your blood

    Treasure every beating heart that sets your soul on fire.

    Fire. Love will set your soul on fire.

    General CommentAt first listen I didn't go gaga for it. But after hearing it several times this song really grew on me.

    There is two lines in the song that needs to be fixed:
    1) You're only an older noose lose on my throat (This doesn't sound right at all)

    You're only an ??? lose on my throat (This lyrically sounds better but I can't make out that one word)

    2) Whether a flower in my hand or a gun in my hand

    With every flower in my hand or a gun in my hand
