Say I'm okay
I'm bleeding fire
Eating nightmares

So tell me how to do it slow
I'm a maze
Can we say goodnight now?

Take this world away
And strangle it with wires for a lifetime

Make a pretty face and say I'm fine
I'm okay
Only in the nighttime

Take this world away
Strangle it with wires for a lifetime

Make a pretty face and say I'm fine
I'm okay
Only in the nighttime

Love was the only thing I ever needed, I ever needed

Love was the only thing I ever needed

Love was the only thing I ever needed, I ever needed

    General CommentTo me kinda sounds like this songs about a depressed/suicidal prostitute:

    "so tell me how to do it slow/ i'm a maze" - kinda self explanatory
    "make a pretty face and say i'm fine/ im okay/ only in the nighttime" - I guess you could interpret "only in the nighttime" in 2 ways, either she only needs to put on this front of happiness and say shes "okay in the nighttime" because thats when shes most depressed/ being used. The other way of interpretation is that shes only truly happy in the nighttime because when she can finally "say goodnight" and sleep is the only time she has to herself to enjoy her life.
    "love is the only thing i ever needed" - also pretty self explanatory, even though she lives this life where sex is her means of living she still has never really experienced love, and thats all she really wants or needs.

    Just my two cents on this amazing song :D
