Oh my, oh no
How can I be so shameless?
And let myself fall so
Impossibly for you

You wish to demystify
Our electricity
And claim the charge between our hearts
Is just illusionary

Oh my, oh no
How can I be so shameless?
And let myself fall so
Impossibly again

And I spent too many years
Searching for somebody
To be my wrecking ball
And rebuild all that�s broken

And I spent too many nights
Without ever thinking
Maybe I�m a wrecking ball
And I�m breaking all that I�m touching

And I spent too many days
Drowning in the shadows
From the mess of a man that I�ve made (?)
And the nest of mistakes that I have to lay

Doctor I�m telling you
To cut me open please
Doctor I�m begging you
To bring me to my knees
Tear out all my flesh
And all my bones
Make me your cold machine
So I can walk alone

Hey, Hoo
Who do you call
When you tryin� to chase the bad mood off
Hey, Now
What do you do
When you can�t shake the bad in you

Doctor I�m telling you
To cut me open please
Doctor I�m begging you
To bring me to my knees
Tear out all my flesh
And all my bones
Make me your cold machine
So I can walk alone

(4x)
I want you so bad
I can�t stand
The man that I am

Got this riddle figured (Do you)
Someone must have sent you to
Orchestrate a shell game
Against the callouses of our hearts

I hate your subtle beauty (Do you)
The way your doe eyes slow dance me
And beat like a million humming birds
When I draw closer

And the slope of your nose I detest
It�s the kind that drove pharos crazy
Touch me I�m a hornet�s nest
Sinking in Egyptian levies

Most of all I hate the way that I miss your sight
More than a blind man would miss his own eyes

Oh my, oh no
How can I be so shameless?
And let myself fall so
Impossibly for you

Oh my, oh no
How can I be so shameless?
It�s �cause I�ve learned that new disease (?)
And you are what I want

    Lyric Correction"And I spent too many days
    Drowning in the shallows
    Of the mess of a man that I've made
    And the nest of mistakes that I have delayed"

    "Hey, moon
    Who do you call
    When you tryin' to chase the bad mood off
    Hey, now
    What do you do
    When you can't shake the (???) blues"

    "Most of all I hate the way that I miss your sigh
    More than a blind man would miss his own eyes"

    "Oh my, oh no
    How can I be so shameless?
    It's 'cause I've learned that need deceives
    And you are what I want."

    General CommentFor the last line, I'm hearing "It's 'cause I've learned that need to seize, and you are what I want" ...seems to make more sense, although I'm not totally sure on this.
